Privacy Technology Practices

Some browsers have incorporated “do not track” features to enable users to make privacy and security choices.

Please note that we do not alter our Sites and Services’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.

 

Data Security

We are committed to protecting the security of your Personal Information. Depending on the circumstances, we may hold your information in hard copy and/or electronic form. For each medium, we use technologies and procedures to protect Personal Information. We review our strategies and update as necessary to meet our business needs, changes in technology, and regulatory requirements.

 

These measures include, but are not limited to, technical and organizational security policies and procedures, security controls, and employee training.

 

You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account credentials for the services.  We will treat access to the Sites and Services through your account credentials as authorized by you.  Unauthorized access to password-protected or secure areas is prohibited and may lead to criminal prosecution.  We may suspend your use of all or part of the Sites and Services without notice if we suspect or detect any breach of security.  If you believe that information you provided to us is no longer secure, please notify us immediately using the contact information provided below.

Data Retention

 

We retain your Personal Information for as long as we have a business relationship with you and strive to retain your Personal Information for no longer than is reasonably necessary. The applicable retention period depends on the purpose for which Personal Information was obtained and on specific data retention obligations arising from applicable laws that may require the data to be held for a certain period of time.

 

We may retain Personal Information for a longer period than is necessary for its processing purpose in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect of our relationship with you.
