We use this information only to measure site activity and to develop ideas for improving our site.

There may be several opportunities on our web site for you to provide us with information about you and your interests, such as your name, mailing address and e-mail address.

Our web site may make use of ‘cookie’ technology to measure site activity and to customize information to your personal tastes. A cookie is an element of data that a web site can send to your browser, which may then store the cookie on your hard drive. So, when you come back to visit us again, we can tailor information to suit your individual preferences. The goal is to save you time and provide you with a more meaningful visit.

You take online privacy seriously, and so do we. It’s our way of sustaining your trust in PENCIL and our services.
