Transfer of Data

Your personal information may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, county, country, or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

The personal information we collect is stored and/or processed in the United States, or where we or our partners, affiliates, and third-party providers maintain facilities.

If we transfer your personal information to third-parties in other countries: (i) we will perform those transfers in accordance with the requirements of applicable law; and (ii) we will protect the transferred personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

Security of Data

The security of your data is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, like using a secured connection through HTTPS using 256-bit encryption technology, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
