5. What Steps Do We Take To Protect Your Information Online?

We take reasonable measures to protect your personal information in an effort to prevent loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Please be aware, however, that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of any of your information or of your or our network and/or security systems, and your transmittal of any information to us and your use of the Service is solely at your own risk.

Please keep your Account information secure and secret.

We are not responsible for the functionality, privacy, or security measures of any other organization. You should not share your Account information with third parties and, if you believe that any of your Account information has been compromised, you should notify us immediately and change your Account information as directed through the Service.

If you have an account, you can access and modify some of the personal information you provided us that is associated with your Account. You may “opt out” of receiving marketing or promotional emails from us by following the instructions in those emails. If you opt out of these messages, you will still receive emails from us about your Account, our services and other pertinent information related to our services. These communications are considered part of the Service and your Account, which you cannot opt-out from receiving.
