HOW DO WE PROTECT THE INFORMATION COLLECTED?
We understand that protecting Your Information is important and endeavor to incorporate commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure Your Information, including encrypting Your Information while it is at rest and in transit. We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. All personal information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers behind firewalls.

You should not share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Services like message boards.

Do Not Track Disclosures Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that visitors can set in their web browsers. When a visitor turns on DNT, the browser sends a message to websites requesting that they don’t track the visitor. Currently, there is no standardized way to respond to such signals, and we do not respond to such signals at this time. For information about DNT, visit www.allaboutdnt.org. Upon request, we will provide you with a copy of your account data (EU customers only), or information about whether we hold, or process on behalf of a third party, any of your personally identifiable information. To request this information please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
