Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure.

We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.
V. HOW WE STORE AND RETAIN YOUR INFORMATION
We store your Personal Data securely on our Website and servers or with third parties.
We will keep your Personal Data until you delete your account or request deletion, for as long as we have a legitimate business need to do so, or as required by law for tax, legal, accounting or other purposes, whichever is the longer.
If you have elected to receive our marketing communications, we generally retain information about such preferences until you opt out of these communications.
Periodically we will review our data retention practices to determine the appropriate retention period for your Personal Data, considering the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the purposes of use and retention and whether such purposes can be achieved through other means, and any applicable legal requirements.

- Change in Business Structure: If we undergo a merger, acquisition, financing due diligence, reorganization, bankruptcy, receivership, sale of all or a portion of our assets, or transition of services between providers, your Personal Data and other information may be shared or transferred pursuant to the transaction.
