DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
YOUR CHOICES REGARDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
If you do not wish to receive information and promotional material from us, you may select the appropriate “opt-out” option each time we ask for your Personal Information. If you already receive email communications from us and no longer wish to receive such communications, please contact us through the Contact Us form on the Site to be removed from our emailing lists, or take the “unsubscribe” action described in any email you receive from us.
UPDATING YOUR INFORMATION
If any of the Personal Information you submitted to our Site is inaccurate or outdated or otherwise needs to be changed, please contact us through the Contact Us form on the Site and we will use reasonable efforts in our control to revise that information.
You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions on this Site. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without some residual information remaining because of backups.
HOW WE SECURE YOUR INFORMATION
This Site has industry-standard measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control, including the use of the secure Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) protocol. Personal Information you submit to us is not stored on the Site and is sent by email to the person who will respond to your inquiry. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information, you acknowledge that:
- there are privacy and security risks to the Internet which are beyond our control;
- the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information exchanged between you and us through the Site cannot be guaranteed;
- and any information or data may be viewed or tampered with by a third party while in transit.
These measures standing alone are not sufficient to ensure the security of your Personal Information. It is also important for you to guard against unauthorized access to your passwords and unauthorized use of your computer.
Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. For that reason, our Site does not intentionally solicit, collect and/or maintain personally identifiable information from users under age 13. If you are under the age of 13, we ask that you do not submit any Personal Information to us and use this Site only under the supervision of a parent or guardian. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe your child has submitted Personal Information to us, please contact us using the Contact Us form on the Site, and we will delete your child’s Personal Information from our records.
