Considerations when you send information to us electronically
While we do all we reasonably can to protect your Personally Identifiable Information from misuse, loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure, including investing in security software, no data transfer over the internet is 100% secure.

If you send us any information, including (without limitation) Personally Identifiable Information, it is sent at your own risk.
If you access another website from our websites, you do so and provide Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with the terms and conditions under which the provider of that website operates.
