If you are a user of our Website or services, you may restrict distribution of your information by indicating such restrictions in your account when asked. On the Website, you have the option to remove your name and personal information from any information that will or may be disclosed to a third party although disclosures to law enforcement or to meet other legal requirements may still be required. You may exercise your choice to “opt-out” of providing personal information in many ways.

We encourage you to review the privacy policies of such other sites before revealing any sensitive or personal information. Regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. We cannot ensure or warrant the ultimate security of any information you transmit.

DATA INTEGRITY - We seek to ensure that your information is reliable for the use you intend, and that it is accurate, complete, and current. To assist us in ensuring that your information is relevant on an ongoing basis for its intended purposes, we encourage you to update your information on the Website as frequently as is necessary.

COOKIES - A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your computer’s hard drive when you visit those sites. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that a website uses to track the pages you have visited. A persistent cookie allows the website to remember you on subsequent visits. We do not set persistent cookies unless you ask to use the "remember me" feature available on the Website.
