Maintenance and Security of Personal Information

Company keeps a User’s Personal Information for as long as We determine necessary to fulfill the objective for which it was collected.

We have implemented measures designed to secure Users’ personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. We secure the Personal Information provided by Users on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, behind firewalls, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure, according to industry standard security measures.

The transmission of information via the internet is not 100% completely secure. Although Company does our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of information submitted to, maintained by, or transmitted from 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.
