  6. SECURITY MEASURES

    We use best efforts to keep your personal information secure by using SSL certificates. However, we make no guarantees as to the security or privacy of your personal information. It is in your best interests to safeguard your personal information and to use firewalls, anti-virus, spyware and other encryption methods when submitting personal information or content to us.

    Your web browser may transmit a “Do Not Track? (DNT?) signal. Because of differences in web browsers’ default settings and the manner in which browsers incorporate DNT signals, it is sometimes unclear to site operators whether site visitors have selected the DNT setting themselves, or whether they are aware that they have a choice in determining the setting. We do not currently respond to DNT signals. Once the Internet industry has settled on standards related to this issue, we may reevaluate this approach.
