When you provide personal information to us, you expressly consent to the sharing of such information with third parties for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Statement and our Terms of Use.

There are various technologies, including “cookies”, which can be used to provide you with tailored information from a website. A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. This website may use cookies or other technologies which collect information automatically, such as information about your Internet connection; the equipment you use to access this website, but not the domains from which you visit; browser information (including the browser you are using, the size of the browser window, the resolution of the user’s screen, the use of Java or Flash applications, and the language settings of the browser); usage details (including the URL and title of the page you are viewing); and, IP address, so that we can better serve you when you return to this website.

Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which the browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. We currently do not take action in response to these signals. If and when a standard for responding is established, we may revisit our policy on responding to these signals. We use reasonable efforts to maintain physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect your personal information from unauthorized or inappropriate access but we note that the Internet is not a secure medium.

Although we endeavor to take steps to provide a secure environment for users accessing this website, due to the nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee confidentiality or security of the personal and other information being provided.

We welcome your e-mail correspondence. However, it is possible that information transmitted to us electronically may be read or obtained by other parties. Messages sent over the Internet cannot be guaranteed to be completely secure or error free as they are subject to possible interception, corruption, delay, loss or possible alteration, for which we are not responsible. We will not be liable to you or anyone else for any damages or otherwise in connection with any messages sent by you to us, or any message sent by us to you over the Internet. If you send e-mail (encrypted or not) to us over the Internet, you are accepting the associated risks, including lack of confidentiality.

Further, despite all possible security measures that we would take to keep this website free from hacking and other interference, this website like any other site is not free from such risks. We disclaim all liability on account of any loss or damage that any user may suffer or incur on account of any alteration or manipulation of any data or information accessed or downloaded from this website.
