Additionally, we will share your Personal Information with third parties where required by law, where it is necessary in connection with our Services or services, to enforce our agreements (including for billing and collection purposes), or where we have another legitimate interest in doing so.

Most of the third parties with whom we share your Personal Information are located and store your information in the United States, although some may be located or store your information outside of the United States. These third parties are only permitted to use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to enable them to provide their services to us and are required to follow our express instructions and to comply with appropriate security measures to protect your Personal Information. 


We have implemented measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure and any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology.

If you later opt back into getting marketing communications from us, we will remove your information from our opt-out databases.

Do Not Track is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked.

You can choose to limit the data that third party services (e.g., Social Media Platforms) share with us using the options provided to you by the applicable third party service (for example, the options provided by a third party social media platform when you connect your social media account with our Services).  You can also disconnect your use of our Services from the third-party service at any time using the options provided to you by the applicable third-party service.  Please note, however, that if you disconnect from the third-party service, that will not delete the data we may have previously collected while you were connected.

If you are located outside United States and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Information, to the United States and process it there. Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer. 

We will take all the steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and no transfer of your Personal Information will take place to an organization or a country unless there are adequate controls in place including the security of your data and other Personal Information.
