As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee that any information stored on our servers, or transmitted to, or from, a user will be free from unauthorized access.

If you receive an e-mail or other correspondence requesting that you provide any such information via e-mail, or to a web site that is not on such domain name, please do not provide such information, and report such request to our privacy officer at privacy firstname.lastname@example.org In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your PII in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail.
You can opt-out of our use and disclosure of your PII for marketing purposes and customer satisfaction surveys, and/or withdraw your prior consent for some by the methods provided below.
