This site provides you the opportunity to participate in a customer satisfaction survey. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in this survey is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information.

We use this information to measure our overall service levels and as resource to gather information regarding concerns our customers may have. You may be contacted if we feel the comments you express warrant further investigation.
We use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company is prohibited from using Personally Identifiable Information for any secondary reasons. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.
