Our Online Services are not intended for children under 13 years of age. No one under age 13 may provide any information to us through use of the Online Services. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 unless we have verification of parental or guardian consent. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information to us through the Online Services.

We also maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal and state regulations to protect the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your information.
Please be aware that email and text messages or information sent through other electronic means may not be secure. There are risks associated with unsecure communications that you should consider. These risks include (without limitation) that an unauthorized person may get access to these communications. By engaging us in unsecure communications, you agree to accept these risks and consent to receive unsecure communications in response from us.

If you are accessing the Online Services outside of the United States, please be aware that your personal information and other information will be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States, where our servers are located and our central database is operated.

By using the Online Services, you understand that your personal information and other information may be transferred to our facilities in the United States and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Policy.
DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
Some website browsers have a “do not track” (DNT) feature that allows you to tell other websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. We do not currently respond to a browser’s DNT signal. We are not aware of, and do not knowingly allow, such third parties to track your activity over time on the website.
