We may also disclose Personally Identifiable Information if we are required to do so by law or if we in good faith believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with any court order, law, or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request; (b) protect and defend our rights and property; (c) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the Service; or (d) protect the personal safety or property of our users or the public.

We support the right of our visitors to choose. We strive to provide you with choices regarding the Personally Identifiable Information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:
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.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. 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.
The Service may provide links to various websites that we do not control. When you click on one of these links, you will be transferred out of the Service and connected to the website of the organization that you selected.
We are not responsible for the nature, quality, or accuracy of the content or opinions expressed on such websites, and such websites are not investigated, monitored, or checked for quality, accuracy, or completeness by us.
Inclusion of any linked website on the Service does not imply or express our approval or endorsement of the linked website or any of the content, opinions, products, or services provided through the Service. We exercise no control over linked sites even if an affiliation exists between the Service and a third-party website.
All parts of the Service are controlled, operated, and administered entirely within the United States. By using any part of the Service, you signify your agreement to the terms of this Privacy Notice. If you do not agree with any provision of this Privacy Notice, please do not disclose any Personally Identifiable Information through the Service.
This Privacy Notice and the notices outlined herein are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any third party.
