When We Disclose Information Given by You
We do not collect personal information for any purpose other than to respond to your inquiries or requests. Any personally identifying information you provide is voluntary. We may use internal or external service providers to operate our website and employ other persons to perform work on our behalf, such as sending postal mail and e-mail. These persons may have access to the personally identifiable information you submit through the website, but only for the purpose of performing their duties. These personnel are not permitted to use your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
We may be required to disclose information you share with us to unaffiliated third parties if necessary to prevent or investigate fraud, illegal activity or misuse of this website. We may also disclose information you share with us to affiliated or unaffiliated third parties for other purposes if we have notified you in advance and you have not objected, you have requested or authorized us to do so, or we are required to do so by law.
How We Protect Your Information
If you voluntarily provide personal information about yourself, such as name and email address, we will endeavor to safeguard that information in accordance with our internal policies governing use and disclosure of confidential information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural security measures in compliance with applicable regulatory standards. We also limit access to your personal information to those who respond to your inquiries and serve your needs. All employees and service partners are educated about the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of information we collect, gain access to, and use in our business.
