Do Not Track

Some web browsers have "Do Not Track" or similar features that allow you to tell each website you visit that you do not want your activities on that website tracked. At present, the Website does not respond to "Do Not Track" signals and consequently, we may continue to collect information about you even if your browser's "Do Not Track" feature is activated.

We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.

Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.
