Do Not Track Signals
Our website is not designed to currently respond to "Do Not Track" ("DNT") signal requests from browsers. This is due to the lack of global standardized interpretation that defines "Do Not Track" signals. Once the industry has settled on standards related to this issue, we may re-evaluate this approach.
We have implemented reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security procedures to help protect your information.
However, we cannot guarantee the security of information from unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, or other circumstances outside of our control.
We will retain copies of your information for as long as you maintain your account or as necessary in connection with the purposes set out in this Policy, unless applicable law requires a longer retention period. In addition, we may retain your information for the duration of any period necessary to establish, exercise or defend any legal rights.
Policy Changes and Notification
We may update this Policy in the future. When we make material changes to this Policy, we will update this web page and change the Revised Date listed above.
