We do not sell, rent or otherwise disclose personal information to third parties for their own marketing or other purposes.

We Keep Data

Security of Personal Information

We take reasonable steps to protect personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure (for example, we protect your data using encryption),  alteration, or destruction. We also make sure that any third parties keep all personal data they process secure on our behalf. However, no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.

Individuals have the right to access their personal information held by us and to ask for it to be corrected if it is inaccurate. You also have the right to request a copy of that personal data, raise an objection about how the personal data is processed, request that your personal data be erased if there is no longer a justification for it, ask that the processing of your personal data is restricted in certain circumstances.
