We respect the privacy of individuals who visit our website, send us e-mail, or participate in features/services we offer online. Accordingly, our policy regarding online privacy has been developed using the following guiding principles:
We maintain a strict “no-spam” policy. Our customers and subscribers to our email services (or any other feature/service found on our website), if any, will not receive unsolicited email messages from us.
We may collect information online primarily to provide our visitors with a more relevant experience on our sites. When doing so, we will make every reasonable effort to avoid excessive or irrelevant collection of data.
We will take reasonable physical, electronic and managerial measures to safeguard and secure any information you provide to us (e.g., data will be stored in encrypted databases with restricted access).
We will not share any information you’ve provided to us with anyone without your consent other than to provide the service you’ve requested or as required by law. At the time you register for any such service, you will be notified of, and asked to consent to, the sharing of your information with any particular third party necessary to the provision of the requested service.
