To underscore our commitment to privacy and our vision that good privacy is good business, we have adopted this Online Privacy Policy for the websites that link to this privacy policy, including but not limited to SIRA. You may also have been directed to this Online Privacy Policy from other websites owned or operated by SIRA.

This Online Privacy Policy only applies to information collected through our websites. It does not apply to information collected in any other way, including information collected offline. Our websites are not directed at children under the age of 13.

I. Personally Identifiable Information

Personally identifiable information ("PII") collected with your consent may include, for example, name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number, occupation, any information you provide to us when placing an order or using the services on our websites, any responses you choose to provide to survey questions, information provided in connection with subscribing to a newsletter, any inquiries you may make through our websites, or any other PII you provide to us through our websites.

In addition, we collect information, including PII, in connection with attempts to log-in to our products and services through our websites and the actions taken by users while they are logged into our online products and services. This may include, for example, collecting information pertaining to searches conducted, the pages visited during the online session, and any or all other interactions that the user may have with our systems while the user is logged into one of our products or services.

II. Cookies

Our websites may use browser "cookies", local shared objects (also known as "Flash cookies") or other technologies.

Browser cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer. Browser cookies, for example, may be used by our websites to help us manage your visit to our websites or determine whether a visitor is unique or whether a visitor has viewed our websites before. While most browsers are set to accept cookies by default, you can set yours to refuse cookies or to alert you before accepting them. Your browser manufacturer has information on changing the default setting for your specific browser. Deleting or refusing to accept cookies from our websites, however, may limit your ability to use some portions of our websites which require the use of cookies to operate effectively.

III. Non-personally Identifiable Information

Our websites also may collect non-personally identifiable information. For example, as you browse our websites we may collect information about your visit. Via Web server logs, for example, we may monitor statistics such as: the number of people that visit our websites, which page(s) are visited on our websites, from which domain our visitors come (e.g.,,, and which browsers people use to visit our websites (e.g. Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.). We also may compile statistics that show the numbers and frequency of visitors to our websites and its individual pages. These aggregated statistics may be used internally to improve our websites and for product development and marketing purposes generally. The aggregated statistics may also be provided to advertisers and other third parties, but again, the statistics contain no PII.

Our websites also may use outsourcing programs to assist us in analyzing this data to better our websites.


We have put in place administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the information that we collect from you through our websites. In the event we request or transmit sensitive information, such as credit card information or Social Security Numbers, our processes are designed to use industry standard, secure socket layer ("SSL") encryption. We also limit access to PII to those employees who need access in order to carry out their job responsibilities.

We may revise this Online Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any material changes to this Online Privacy Policy, the date of the most recent revision will be indicated above so that you can determine whether there have been any revisions since your last visit.
