WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT

As part of our efforts to better serve you, we may collect the following information if voluntarily provided:

WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION WE GATHER

We may use the information to improve our services. We will process only the data absolutely necessary for the completion of our business and limit access to personal data to only those employees needing the information to complete the process consented to by you.

We may periodically send emails about our activities, or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.

We strive to safeguard your data from outside parties, though we may be obligated to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal processes or when we believe in good faith that such disclosure is required by law, such as in response to a court order, a law enforcement agency request, in response to a subpoena, or in response to an administrative agency’s request.

While it is understood that no method of electronic storage or transmission over the Internet is 100% secure against malicious digital attacks, we employ the commonly acceptable commercially available security measures to protect your personal information. In the event of a security breach, we will notify all data subjects of its occurrence within 72 hours of discovery. The method of this notification will include as many forms as deemed necessary to disseminate the information in a timely manner, including email, telephone message, and public announcement.
