Email Newsletter Subscriptions
When visitors or users submit a form or view a module, we capture the IP Address for analysis purposes. We also capture the email address and might capture other personal data included in the form fields.

We use Hustle to count how many times our newsletter subscription buttons are clicked. Cookies are also used to determine whether the user has already subscribed to a newsletter.
We use anonymous cookies to prevent users from seeing the same popup repetitively in an attempt to make our users experience more pleasant while still delivering time sensitive messaging.
