Security of Information
We use industry standard physical, technical and administrative security measures to protect your Personal Information. Our employees have access to your Personal Information only on a need-to-know basis. Contracts with third party service providers, vendors, or suppliers require them to keep information confidential. Sensitive data (such as a credit card number) is protected by SSL encryption when it is transmitted between your web browser and the Site. However, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem.
Please note that emails you send to us through our Site are not encrypted, and we strongly advise you not to communicate any confidential information through these means.
We may also use "cookies" and your Personal Information to enhance your experience on the Site and to provide you with personalized offers. A cookie is a small data file placed on your computer's hard drive that contains information that allows us to track your activity on the Site. The cookie itself does not contain any Personal Information; however, if you provide any Personal Information to us, the cookie may act as an identifier to tie your Personal Information to your IP address or computer. You may choose to delete cookies from your computer's hard drive at any time or to disable cookies on your computer. If you delete cookies that relate to the Site, we may not be able to identify you upon your return to the Site. Additionally, if you disable your computer's cookies, you may not be able to access certain features of the Site that require that cookies be enabled. The Site's cookies cannot be used to read data from your hard drive and cannot retrieve information from any other cookies created by other websites. Additionally, our cookies cannot be used as a virus, Trojan horse, worm or any other malicious tool that could impair your use of your computer. Our cookies are used to help us better understand how you and other users use the Site so we can continue to provide a better, more personalized user experience on the Site.
We expressly reserve the right to change this Policy from time to time without notice to you to reflect changes in privacy-related laws, regulations, or industry standards, or changes in the way we collect or use information. You agree that it is your responsibility to review this Policy and to familiarize yourself with any modifications.
