Security Of Personal Information

The security of your data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. We seek to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure using appropriate physical, technical, organizational, and administrative security measures based on the type of Personal Information and how we are processing that information. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Legal Bases Upon Which We Rely

For certain purposes, it may be appropriate for us to obtain your prior consent. The legal basis of consent is only used by us in relation to processing that is entirely voluntary – it is not used for processing that is necessary or obligatory in any way.

In the event that we rely on your consent, you may at any time withdraw the specific consent you give to our processing as described above. Please note, even if you withdraw consent for us to use your Personal Information for a particular purpose, we may continue to rely on other lawful bases to process your Personal Information for other purposes.

  • The processing is necessary in order for us to comply with our legal obligations (such as compliance with anti-money laundering legislation);
  • The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract you are party to or in order to take steps at your request prior to you entering into a contract;
  • The processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
  • The processing is necessary for the pursuit of our legitimate business interests.

International Transfer Of Personal Information

Your information, including Personal Information, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Certain countries outside the EEA have been approved by the European Commission as providing adequate protection, and therefore, no additional safeguards are required to export Personal Information to these countries. In countries that have not been certified as providing adequate protection, these international transfers are carried out in the framework of  Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the European Commission.

California Shine The Light

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as “Shine The Light” law, permits California residents to annually request information regarding the disclosure of your Personal Information (if any) to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. Requests may be made one time per calendar year. If applicable, this information would include the categories of customer information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared customer information for the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2019 will receive information regarding 2018 sharing activities). You may submit your request using the contact information at the end of this Privacy Policy.

Do Not Track

“Do Not Track” is a privacy preference that you can set in your Internet search browser that sends a signal to a website that you do not want the website operator to track certain browsing information about you. However, because our Website is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals from a user’s computer, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track requests. More information about “do not track” is available at concerning such information.

We do not track Website users over time and across third-party websites. Third parties, other than our service providers (such as our analytics provider), do not have our permission to track which websites you visited prior to and after visiting our Website.

Our Service may contain links to other sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third-party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of every site you visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third-party sites or services.

We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18.
