Safeguarding Your Personal Information
To ensure the security and confidentiality of your personal information, we use technical, administrative, and physical measures designed to protect and secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure.
We may process, store, and transfer your personal information in and to other countries with different privacy laws. In these circumstances, the governments, courts, law enforcement, or regulatory agencies of that country may be able to obtain access to your personal information under those local laws. Whenever we engage a service provider, we require that its privacy and security standards comply with this policy and applicable laws.
We retain your personal information only as long as it is required to satisfy the purpose for which it was collected or any new purpose to which you have consented or as permitted or required by applicable law.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Websites. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on our Websites.
Links to Other Sites & Third-Party Providers
This Policy applies only to our Websites and to the use of personal information we collect. This Policy does not apply to the practices of companies or websites that are not owned or controlled by us or to services on the Websites that are provided by third parties. We may provide links to other websites that we believe may be of interest to our visitors; however, we are not responsible for the content of, or the privacy practices employed by, other companies or websites.
Access and Correction
We want to ensure that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current so please keep us updated if your personal information changes. If you wish to review, correct, or withdraw consent to the use of your personal information, please email us at: email@example.com.
Anonymous Information & “Cookies”
We may collect anonymous information from the Websites, such as pages you visit and searches you perform. Anonymous information is processed by us to help us improve the contents of our Websites and to compile aggregate statistics about individuals using our Websites for internal and market research purposes.
In doing so, we may install “cookies” that collect the first domain name level of a user and the date and time of access. Cookies by themselves are not used to discover the identity of a user. If you wish, you may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, and this will enable you to determine whether to accept it or not.
We do not condone “spamming”. Spamming is the practice of sending unsolicited emails in large numbers and repeatedly to individuals with whom the sender has had no previous contact or who have declined to receive communications. Rather, where we believe that certain product, service or other information may be of interest to you, we reserve the right to inform you by email, but we will give you the choice of opting out of such communication.

The Websites are not directed for use by children. We do not intend to collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, you should not provide any personal information to us and you should use the Websites only with the involvement of a parent or guardian. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 18 and suspect that he or she has provided personal information on or through the Websites, please contact us at the email address below.
