SENDING AN EMAIL TO COMPANY

If you choose to send Company an email that includes personal information, normally we will use the information provided only to respond to your message and for no other purposes.

SECURITY

Company uses commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard information in its possession against loss, theft, unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. However, no one can, and Company does not, guarantee the complete safety of your information. If you are asked to select a password to access a Company service or in connection with the use of a Company service, you should select a password that contains a combination of letters, numbers and non-alphanumeric characters (for example, %, $ and &) and avoid dictionary words. In addition, you should not use the same password that you use for other business or personal accounts.

We will retain your information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in these Policies unless a longer retention period is required or allowed by law.
