OUR SECURITY MEASURES

We want your Personal Information to remain secure. When you transmit Personal Information to our Site, we use encryption technology to protect its privacy. Although we will make reasonable efforts to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties, you should be aware that there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party could intercept an Internet transmission or that someone will find a way to thwart our security systems.

YOUR PRIVACY CHOICES

You may also request deletion of your User Account by sending an email through our contact form.

All information that you provide via our Services is stored in servers that are operated and maintained by us or our Contractors for a term of at least four (4) years. You should be aware that it is not technologically practical to delete all information that we collect. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of information about you may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. Nevertheless, upon receiving your request, we will delete all Personal Information stored in the databases we actively use for this Site. In addition, after receiving your request for removal, we will use commercially reasonable efforts not to disclose any Personal Information stored in a non-erasable form, except as required by law. Finally, we reserve the right to maintain copies of information about you, including Personal Information, for as long as we deem it necessary for business purposes, subject to applicable law.

Communicate with Us by E-mail

You may communicate with us by sending an e-mail through our contact form if you have questions about this Site or our Services. We will not disclose Personal Information that we receive in e-mail unless such disclosure is necessary to respond to your request or inquiry or is otherwise permitted as described above. However, all e-mail transmissions are vulnerable to unauthorized interception. In addition, we remind you that e-mail sent or received through an employer’s computer or computer system is not confidential and may be the legal property of your employer.

The level of legal protection for personal information is not equivalent in all countries; however, we will take the security measures described in this Privacy Policy in an effort to keep your information secure. By using this Site or any of our Services, you consent to the collection, storage, and processing of your information in the United States, Canada and in any country to which we may transfer your information in the course of our business operations.
