Quam-Nichols Company and all of our divisions (“we”, “our”, or “us”) respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. That is why we have adopted this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how and for what purposes we are collecting, processing, and using your personal and non-personal information. We pledge to take reasonable steps to ensure that your information is used in ways that comply with this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is in effect for any web page, mobile application, email list, onsite electronic data collection, generic information, and personal information collected and/or owned by us, including but not limited to the our website located at, or any subdomain, no matter the method of collection (e.g., mail, facsimile, online form, survey, promotion), including collection through our website and any online feature, service, or program we offer (collectively, the “Web Properties”).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, this Privacy Policy is not applicable to any other web page, mobile application, social media site, generic information, or personal information collected and/or owned by any entity other than us. All information collected through the Web Properties is intended only to be collected from citizens of, and pursuant to the laws, rules and regulations of, the United States of America and its states and territories.

Use of Analytics Tools and Cookies to Collect Information

We may use analytics tools and other third party technologies, such as Google Analytics and DoubleClick Cookies, to collect non-personal information in the form of various usage and user metrics when you use our Web Properties. These tools and technologies collect and analyze certain types of information, including cookies, IP addresses, device and software identifiers, referring and exit URLs, onsite behavior and usage information, feature use metrics and statistics, usage and purchase history, MAC Address, mobile unique device ID, and other similar information.

The third party analytics companies who collect information on our Web Properties and other online products and/or services may combine the information collected with other information they have independently collected from other websites and/or other online or mobile products and services relating to your activities across their network of websites as well as online and/or mobile products and services. Many of these companies collect and use information under their own privacy policies.

In addition to using cookies and related technologies as described above, we also may permit certain third party companies to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to users and to collect and use other data about user activities on our Web Properties (e.g., to allow them to tailor ads on third party services). These companies may deliver ads that might also place cookies and otherwise track user behavior. These companies may use information about user behavior in order to provide customized advertisements across various products and services. In the course of providing these services, products or placing advertisements, these third party companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your computer, and may record information to these cookies based upon your activities on any of our Web Properties and on third party websites. Each of these companies uses this cookie information according to their own privacy and security policies. If you wish to have this information not used for serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out as indicated in this Policy Privacy. Please note this does not opt you out of being delivered advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.
