Where such rights apply, we will comply with requests to exercise these rights in accordance with applicable law.

We care about the security of your transactions and apply industry-standard practices and technologies to safeguard your credit card information. We also employ other appropriate security protocols to help protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the organization.  However, no method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is absolutely secure.  Therefore, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Retention of Your Information

We keep your information for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which it is processed and/or as required to comply with applicable laws.

Links to Third-Party Websites

This site contains links to other sites that are owned or operated by others (“third-party websites”).

Children’s Privacy

This site is not intended for use by children under the age of 16 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16.  If we become aware that we have collected personal information under applicable law from a child under such age without legally valid parental consent, we will take reasonable steps to remove that information.

International Users and Consent to Transfer

Our computer systems are based in the United States, so your information will be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union.  By using the site, you understand that such information will be transferred to the United States, which may not offer a level of protection equivalent to that required in the European Union or certain other countries, and to the processing of that information as described in this Privacy Policy.

Where required, we will use appropriate safeguards when transferring your data outside of European Union.  For more information about these safeguards, please contact us as detailed in the “Contact Us” section below.
