Web Site Privacy Statement
Scope of this Privacy Statement
This Policy includes any separate privacy notices and/or notices posted on particular pages of the Site that may provide more detail regarding personal information we collect on those pages, why we need that information, and choices you may have about the ways we use that information.
If you sign up to use a special feature of the Site, you may be asked to expressly consent to special terms, for example, by checking a box or clicking on a button marked, “I agree.” This separate agreement will supplement or amend this Policy, but only with respect to the matters governed by such separate agreement.
If you are located outside of the United States, please note that any personal information collected through this Site may be transferred to the United States and other countries that might not provide an equivalent level of protection as the data protection laws in your home country. Your use of this Site or submission of any personal information will therefore constitute your consent to the transfer of your personal information outside of your home country.
Please be sure to read this entire Policy before submitting any information to the Site. We may update this Policy from time to time. We will also revise the "last updated" date at the top of this Policy. We encourage you to periodically review the Policy for updates.
