Please note that we reserve the right to reject any changes you make to your personal information and to reject any requests to change your personal information submitted through inappropriate channels.
We use commercially-reasonable physical, technical, and administrative measures to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. For example, we restrict access to personal information to employees, contractors, and other service providers on a need-to-know basis, and we use industry-standard encryption technology to secure data at rest and in transmission. However, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. As we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to or from us, we are not responsible for any unauthorized access to and disclosure of any information you send to or receive from us. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk.
Please also keep in mind that the safety and security of your information also depends on you. You are responsible for keeping your account information, including your password, confidential.

Automated Data Collection Technologies
As you navigate through and interact with the Service, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns, as further described in this Policy.
Cookies, Web Beacons and Analytics
Web Beacons. Pages of the Service or emails we send to you may contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages, opened emails, and for other related Service statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain content and verifying integrity).
Other Technologies. We may use other third party services that automatically collect information about you to better understand how you use and interact with the Service. These may include, but are not limited to, vendors that provide us with email marketing tools. We may also use third-party services to deliver advertising with such third parties. The information collected through this process by the third party service providers does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details, or other personal information that directly identifies you unless you choose to provide these.
“Do Not Track” Signals
Some Internet browsers allow you to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. We respect DNT signals, and will not enable unnecessary third-party analytics tools to collect data about your usage if you choose to transmit DNT signals.
