Use of your Personal Information
We collect personally identifiable information from you only when you voluntarily provide it to us. If and when it is collected, we may use personally identifiable information in the following ways:
- Fulfillment of Requests and Communication. We process personally identifiable information to comply with your requests, respond to your inquiries, and send you documents, reports or other information, such as welcome letters, compliance reports, information on technical service issues, and security announcements. If you contact us through the Site, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and use it to respond to you. We will further use personally identifiable information to fulfill any other purposes for which it was provided, and as disclosed at the time the data is collected.
- Internal Business Purposes. We may also use personally identifiable information about you for our internal business purposes, such as data analysis, audits, and other similar purposes.
- Services. In addition to the purposes mentioned above, we may use personally identifiable information for the purposes of providing products, items or services purchased by you or to fulfill contracts between you and the Company.
We collect and use your personal information to operate and improve the Site and deliver the services or carry out the transactions you have requested. These uses may include providing you with more effective customer service; making the Site or services easier to use by eliminating the need for you to repeatedly enter the same information; performing research and analysis aimed at improving our products, services and technologies.
We may disclose personal information that we collect or you provide to contractors, service providers, and other third parties we use to support our business and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them.
We do not sell, rent or lease our customer lists to third parties. We may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, we may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
We may keep track of the websites and pages our customers visit at the Site, in order to determine what services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within the Site to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
The Site uses “cookies” to enable you to sign in to our services and to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server.

If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of the services or websites you visit, including the Site.
Data Retention Policy
Security of your Personal Information
We are committed to protecting the security of your personally identifiable information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we secure the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a password or credit card information) over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. In addition, our business practices are reviewed periodically for compliance with policies and procedures governing the security and confidentiality of our information.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.
The safety and security of your information also depends on you. If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always choose to log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.
Your California Privacy Rights
California law permits customers in California to request certain details about how their information is shared with third parties and, in some cases, affiliates, for those third parties’ and affiliates’ own direct marketing purposes. California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) may permit users of our Site who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to [email protected].
This website does not provide services or products to children under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personally identifiable data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected such data from anyone under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we will take steps to remove that information from our servers.
