We may work with third party advertising companies that collect and use information about your online activities across sites over time, in order to deliver more relevant advertising elsewhere on the Internet. This practice is known as interest-based advertising. These third parties include business partners and advertising networks, which collect information about your interests when you view or interact with one of their advertisements or with a social sharing button displayed on our Site. These companies may have access to information about your device (such as IP or MAC address) and may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

We do not have access to, or control over, the technologies that these third parties may use to collect information about your interests, and the information practices of these third parties are not covered by this Privacy Policy.

Our Site may contain social buttons, links, graphics, or banners that link to other websites. We do not control the privacy policies of third-party websites or applications, our affiliates, service providers, and business partners which may be accessed, directly or indirectly, through your use of the Site. The information you provide to, or is collected by, the third-parties is subject to the privacy policies of those sites.  We cannot control the collection of this information. It is up to you to review the terms of use and privacy policy of third-party websites and contact them directly if you have any questions about their use of the information they collect.


If you are accessing the Site from the European Economic Area, you have the following rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): (i) to be informed about the collection and use of your personal data, (ii) to access your personal data, (iii) to have any inaccurate personal data corrected, (iv) to have your personal data erased, (v) to restrict use of your personal data, (vi) to personal data portability, (vii) to object to the processing of your personal data

California law requires that operators of websites and online services disclose how they respond to a Do Not Track (DNT) signal and whether third parties may collect personal information about an individual’s online activities from their website or service. Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website or online service that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret Do Not Track signals, we do not currently respond to Do Not Track signals.  To learn more about DNT and other browser tracking signals, please see

Under certain provisions of the California Civil Code, residents of the State of California, have the right to request from companies conducting business in California a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed certain personally identifiable information as defined under California law during the preceding year for third party direct marketing purposes. You are limited to one request per calendar year. In your request, please attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. You may request the information on our Contact page.


The security of your Personal Information 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, consistent with industry standards, to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.


When you voluntarily disclose Personally Identifiable Information (i.e. your name, E-mail address, etc.) in the discussion forums or other public areas on our Site, that information can be collected and utilized by third parties and may produce unsolicited messages from third parties. Such activities are beyond our control and this Policy does not apply to such information.
