Privacy Notice for Residents of Certain U.S. States
Some U.S. state laws provide state residents with additional privacy rights. We are not currently subject to any U.S. state law which grants its residents with additional privacy rights, including the California Consumer Protection Act.
Do Not Track Disclosure
Regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission have promoted the concept of Do Not Track as a mechanism to permit Internet users to control online tracking activity across websites through their browser settings.
Since no industry standard has been adopted, we currently do not process or comply with any web browser’s “do-not-track” signal or other similar mechanism that indicates a request to disable online tracking of individual users who visit our Sites or use our Services.
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
Our Services are all directed to people who are at least 16 years old or older.
We do not knowingly collect any “personal information” (as defined by the U.S. Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) from anyone under 16 years of age without valid parental consent. If we become aware that we have collected such personal information without parental consent, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as possible.
We also comply with other age restrictions and requirements in accordance with applicable local laws.
Retention of Information
We keep your information for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which it is processed. The length of time for which we retain information depends on the purposes for which we collected and use it and/or as required to comply with applicable laws.
Protection of Information
We implement a variety of security measures designed to protect the safety of your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction when you enter or submit your personal information on this Website. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any information to us via the Internet.

Change of Ownership
In the event of a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or transfer or sale of all or a portion of our assets to, another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of your personal information, including email addresses, to that entity. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you of any such transfer to an unaffiliated third party (by a posting on our homepage, or by email to your email address that you provided to us, as chosen by us at our discretion).
