Under such circumstances, the information we collect may include: first name, last name, city, state, address, zip code, phone, e-mail address and other information specific to the service requested or provided.

- Location Information: We may determine the approximate location of your device from your IP address. We collect and use this information to, for example, calculate how many people visit our site from certain geographic regions.
Currently, RPB does not utilize “first party cookies” but may do so in the future. We do, however, work with, or intend to work with, third party vendors, and therefore we use, or may use, “third party cookies” to provide us with certain information to, among other things:
- Distinguish unique users;
- Remember the number and time of previous visits;
- Remember traffic source information; and
- Determine the start and end of a session
If you choose to disable cookies, you may not be able to use certain features of the Website.

Personal data that we collect and/or process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes, or as is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject.
We will only retain information derived from cookies and other tracking technologies for a reasonable period of time from the date such information was created.
We reserve the right to use or disclose your personal information if required by law or if we reasonably believe that use or disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or comply with a law, court order, or legal process.
We do not share or sell our Visitors’ private personal information except as follows:

Our Website is served over an encrypted connection, and our Website and e-mail servers are hosted in the United States. While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so, such as monitoring our Website for potential vulnerabilities and attacks.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. We will do our commercially reasonable best to protect your personal data, but we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use appropriate procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
If we learn of a security systems breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may also post a notice on or through the Website in the event of a security breach. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
