How We Use the Information We Collect

Our Disclosure of Personal Information.

We will not sell your Personal Information.  We may share your Personal Information with third parties only when it is required to deliver the services for which the Personal Information was provided.

The laws in the United States on the use of Personal Information may not be as comprehensive as the laws in the country you access the Site from. We are not responsible for this discrepancy.

Security is of the utmost importance to Us, and we will secure all personal information to the best of our abilities. We will also select third party services which we believe uphold strong security practices.
