We do not disclose individual user profiles containing identifying personal information to third parties.
We reserve the right to access and disclose personal information as required by law or at the lawful request of government agencies and/or law enforcement agencies.
This site uses encryption technology to keep your personal information secure. However, there is always the chance that your personal information could be intercepted over the Internet.
Cookies are small bits of information that are sent to your browsers from a web server and used on your computer’s hard drive. They are used on the e-commerce pages for the sole purpose of facilitating transactions.
