    3.1 How do we protect Your Information?

    We have implemented measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on our secured servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted. The safety and security of Your Information depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access certain parts of the Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

    Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect Your Information, we cannot guarantee the security of this data. Any and all transmissions and submissions are at your own risk. Once we have received Your Information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access, but we do not represent, warrant or guarantee that any personal information will be secure.

    Additionally, we cannot control the actions of other users with whom you may choose to share Your Information.

    Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that Your Information will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.

    We are not responsible for the circumvention of our privacy settings or security measures.

    3.2 Access to Your Information and corrections

    We aim to ensure that the personal information collected by us is accurate and up to date. In most, if not all cases, we cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

    If Your Information is amended or deleted, pre-amended or pre-deleted copies of Your Information may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Website users. We are not responsible for Your Information remaining viewable under these circumstances.

    Once we disclose some of Your Information to third parties, we cannot access that information any longer and cannot force the deletion or modification of any such information by the parties to whom we have made those disclosures.

    3.3 Compliance

    We regularly review compliance with this Policy. This Privacy Policy was last updated on August 26, 2014
