We only keep the information collected for as long as it is necessary to provide the requested service. When we store data, we protect it by commercially acceptable means to prevent loss or thefts, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copy, use or modification.

We do not share personally identifiable information publicly or with third parties, except where required by law.

Our site may contain links to external sites that are not operated by us. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and practices of these sites and we cannot accept any responsibility for their respective privacy policies.
