  1. SECURITY

The Service incorporates safeguards designed to protect the security, integrity, and privacy of the Personally Identifiable Information we have collected. We have put in place reasonable precautions designed to protect information from loss, misuse, and alteration, including Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology on the Service. When we collect sensitive information provided when using the Service such information is encrypted during transmission. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon in your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. While on a secure page, the lock icon on web browsers such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open when you are merely “surfing.”

The safety and security of your information also depend on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to any parts of the Service, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Service. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Service.

Although we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personally Identifiable Information transmitted to the Service. Any transmission of Personally Identifiable Information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Service.

Once we receive your transmission, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our internal systems. Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication may be discarded or archived. Please note that your e-mail, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us. For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that you consider sensitive or confidential. If you wish, you may contact us instead via telephone at the numbers provided throughout the Service or at the address set forth below.
