Privacy Policy

At Spectrum, we take your privacy and your privacy concerns very seriously. That is why we have adopted the following privacy policy explaining our online information collection practices and the choices you can make about the way information is collected and used. Spectrum collects information in two ways: through the use of cookie technology and through information you may provide to Spectrum.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Personally identifiable information is any information that would reveal specific information about you as an individual. Examples of personally identifiable information include your name, street address, email address and phone number.

We want to be very clear: we will not obtain personally identifiable information about you when you visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us.
