Web Log Information
Web log information is gathered when you visit one of our websites by the computer that hosts our website (called a “webserver”). The webserver automatically recognizes some non-personal information, such as the date and time you visited our site, the pages you visited, the website you came from, the type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, and location data. The information we collect automatically is statistical data and does not include Your personal information, but we may maintain it or associate it with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. It helps us improve our Sites and to deliver a better and more personalized service, including by enabling us to: (a) estimate our audience size and usage patterns; (b) store information about your preferences, allowing us to customize our Sites according to your individual interests; (c) speed up your searches; and (d) recognize You when You return to our Sites.
This website uses Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet. Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet (it is a “dynamic” address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, it is possible that your IP Address that we collect, or even perhaps a cookie we use, may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because with some broadband connections your IP Address doesn’t change (it is “static”) and could be associated with your personal computer. We use your IP address to report aggregate information on use and to help improve the website.

If COAST Systems learns that it has collected or received personal information from a person under age 18 without verification of parental consent, COAST Systems will delete that information. If you believe that COAST Systems might have any information from or about a person under age 18, please contact us using the information below.
Areas of this website that collect Your Information use industry secure socket layer encryption (SSL); however, to take advantage of this, your browser must support encryption protection (found in Internet Explorer release 3.0 and above).
We may share Your Information with agents, contractors or partners, or successors of COAST Systems, in connection with services that these individuals or entities perform for, or with COAST Systems, these agents, contractors or partners are restricted from using this data in any way other than to provide services for COAST Systems or services for the collaboration in which they and COAST Systems are engaged.
