I value your trust in providing us your Personal Information, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it.

In certain circumstances, local data protection laws (such as the Global Data Protection Regulation or California Consumer Privacy Act) may give you rights with respect to personal information if you are located in or are a resident of that country, state, or territory (including if you are located in the EU/EEA).
IMPORTANT: WE ARE ONLY REQUIRED TO HONOR RIGHTS TO THE EXTENT THAT THESE RIGHTS HAVE BEEN GRANTED TO YOU AND APPLY TO YOU UNDER APPLICABLE DATA PROTECTION LAWS. PLEASE CONSULT YOUR LOCAL DATA PROTECTION LAWS TO DETERMINE WHAT RIGHTS MAY BE AVAILABLE TO YOU AND WHEN ACCESS TO THESE RIGHTS ARE LIMITED
A. What Rights May Be Available to You
These rights differ based upon local data protection laws in your country, state, or territory, but these rights may include one or more of the following:
We take the security of your personal data very seriously. We work hard to protect the personal data that you provide from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, or disclosure. Given the nature of communications and information processing technology, there is no guarantee that personal data will be absolutely safe from access, alteration, or destruction by a breach of any of our physical, technical, and managerial safeguards.
You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your device and account by, among other things, choosing a unique and complex password that nobody else knows or can easily guess and keeping your username and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
We retain the personal data we collect for so long as is reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data was collected, to perform our contractual and legal obligations, and for any applicable statute of limitations periods for the purposes of bringing and defending claims.
Our Site may contain links to third-party websites and applications. Any access to and use of such linked websites and applications is not governed by this Notice but instead is governed by the privacy policies of those third parties. We do not endorse these parties, their content, or any products and services they offer, and we do not endorse these parties, their content, or any products and services they offer, and we are not responsible for the information practices of such third-party websites or applications.
This Site is based in the United States. Your information may be processed, transferred to, and maintained on, servers and databases located within the United States and elsewhere where the privacy laws may not be as protective as your jurisdiction. We reserve the right to transfer your information to and from any state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction. Your consent to this Notice followed by your submission or our collection of such information represents your agreement to any such transfer
Web browsers can transmit “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms that provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personal information about an individual’s online activities over time and across third party websites or online services. Currently, no universally accepted standard exists for how to interpret such signals, although work to create consensus is ongoing. Therefore, we do not currently respond to, or take any action with respect to web browser Do Not Track
The Site is not directed to children under eighteen (18) years of age, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18. If we discover that a child under 18 has provided us with personal information, we will promptly delete such personal information from our systems.
