We follow generally-accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information we obtained, or submitted to us voluntarily, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

    IMPORTANT: When you use the Service, your data may be sent to other countries.
    Your information may be transferred to – and maintained on – computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.


  1. GDPR commitment:
    The European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), enhances the existing framework for companies that process the personal data of EU-based residents. We believe that the GDPR complements our existing data protection policies and processes, giving us a solid foundation and helping us maintain a strong commitment to data privacy. In addition to updating our Privacy Policy to reflect our new obligations, we have implemented processes in place to support users seeking information about how their personal data is stored, used and requesting to delete their data.

    Being ready for GDPR is important to us and we welcome this opportunity to help our users understand what we're doing to prepare. For users interested in learning how we are adopting these principles, please contact us.
