Choices About How We Use and Disclose Your Information
We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Our electronic systems are protected by security software, which software may include firewalls, anti-virus, anti-spam, malware and trojan protection, as well as reasonably up-to-date software patches and security ‘definition’ updates. Although we seek to establish and maintain a security system that covers the use of the internet, its servers, its computers and other IT equipment (such as desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones), please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. The safety and security of your information also depends on you.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.

Residents of the European Union, European Economic Area, United Kingdom and Switzerland.
We will transfer personal data we collect about you to the United States, where our servers are located. We will only transfer data for the purposes outlined in this Policy. The United States may not be deemed to provide the same level of data protection as your home country. For transfers of personal information from the European Economic Area to the United States or United Kingdom, and from transfers from the United Kingdom to the United States, we may rely on the Standard Contractual Clauses (“SCCs”), as adopted by the European Commission on June 4, 2021, and as it may be amended from time to time. If General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) adopted by the European Commission or the United Kingdom do not apply to an agreement you have with us, then the SCCs will not apply.

By law, you may have the right to request access to, correct, and erase the personal information we hold about you, or object to the processing of your personal information under certain circumstances.

We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and your right to access, and to provide you with the personal information that we hold about you or to make your requested changes. Applicable law may allow or require us to refuse to provide you with access to some or all of the personal information that we hold about you, or we may have destroyed, erased, or made your personal information anonymous in accordance with our recordkeeping obligations and procedures. If we cannot provide you with access to your personal information, we will inform you of the reason(s) why, subject to any applicable legal or regulatory restrictions.
