THIRD PARTY LINKS
The security of your personally identifiable information is important to us. We protect your personally identifiable information by maintaining physical, organizational and technological safeguards intended to help protect against unauthorized use, disclosure or access. Personally identifiable information may only be accessed by persons within our organization, or our third party service providers, who require such access to carry out the purposes indicated above, or such other purposes as may be permitted or required by the applicable law. Personally identifiable information we collect is maintained in various data centers and servers, including data centers and servers located at Virginia and Texas, U.S.A.
We retain personally identifiable information that we collect as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or to meet any legal requirements. We have retention standards which meet these requirements. We destroy personally identifiable information when it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected.
Although we have taken measures to help protect our Site, computer systems and any personally identifiable information that we have collected from unauthorized use, access, disclosure, misuse, alteration or destruction, no security measures can provide absolute protection. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us. All third parties that obtain personally identifiable information from us (e.g. service providers that perform functions on our behalf) are required to protect your confidentiality and personally identifiable information in a manner consistent with this policy, and/or as required by law.
Some or all of the personally identifiable information we collect may be stored or processed on servers located in the United States and the European Union, whose data protection laws may differ from the jurisdiction in which you live. As a result, this information may be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in those jurisdictions according to laws in those jurisdictions. Subject to applicable laws in such other jurisdictions, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure that appropriate protections are in place to require the data processor in that country to maintain protections on the Personal Information.
We may use the personally identifiable information we collect from you to provide you with opportunities to offer you products and services that may be of interest to you.

We will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request; however, in some cases we may not be able to allow you to access certain personally identifiable information in certain circumstances, for example if it contains personally identifiable information of other persons, or for legal reasons. In such cases, we will provide you with a reasonable explanation of why it is not possible to grant access to your personally identifiable information.
