Security

This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

Finally, the physical servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure collocation facility, within locked cages that only qualified network administrators have access to. This facility provides security 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and guarantees our servers against power outages by using automated backup power systems.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will make the changes direct to this page so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
