Protecting your information
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. However, information transmitted normally over the Internet can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems for as long as we retain it.
