If you become aware that this has occurred, contact us at the address below to request the deletion of that information.
Web browsers can transmit Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals that indicate that a user does not wish to have activity tracked. Currently, no universally accepted standard exists for how to interpret such signals. Accordingly, we currently do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a DNT signal from your browser.

To exercise any of these rights, you may contact us using the contact information provided below. We will respond to your request within a reasonable time and will notify you of the action we have taken.
Please note, however, that we may refuse to delete personal data that we need to comply with a legal obligation or to prosecute or defend a legal claim. We may also keep a minimum amount of personal information on an in-house marketing suppression file to comply with any request from you not to receive marketing information.
The security, integrity, and confidentiality of your information are important to us. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, use, or modification. From time to time, we review our security procedures to consider appropriate new technologies and methods.
Please be aware, however, that no transmission over the internet is ever 100% secure, and no information stored electronically is ever 100% immune from attack. Thus, despite our best efforts, we cannot provide any guarantee or warranty regarding the security, integrity, and confidentiality of the information you provide to us.
Generally, we retain your information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which you provided it.

Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
We will not sell your personal information or device information to any third party.
