Your rights

If you are a European resident, you have the right to access personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise this right, please contact us through the contact information below.

Additionally, if you are a European resident we note that we are processing your information in order to fulfill contracts we might have with you (for example if you make an order through the Site), or otherwise to pursue our legitimate business interests listed above.

Changes

We may update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to our practices or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.

“Do not track” Requests

Some browsers incorporate a ‘Do Not Track’ (DNT) feature that, when turned on, signals to websites and online services that you do not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet an accepted standard for how to respond to browser DNT signals, we do not currently respond to them except as specifically required by law.

Security

We use commercially reasonable security measures to protect against loss, misuse and alteration of your personal information under our control. However, no system can be 100% secure. While we strive to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us, or that we transmit to you, or guarantee that it will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. You use the Service and provide us with information at your own initiative and risk.

We may also provide notice to you in other ways in our discretion, such as through contact information you have provided. As this Privacy Policy may be modified from time-to-time, you should check this Privacy Policy frequently for any such changes. Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Privacy Policy unless otherwise specified, and your continued use of the Service after the effective date of the revised Privacy Policy (or such other act as specified in the revised Privacy Policy) will constitute your consent to those changes to the fullest extent allowed by applicable law.
