How We Protect Your Information
We recognize that by utilizing our websites or mobile applications and when otherwise engaging with us offline, you are placing your trust in us. We thank you, and we will take reasonable precautions designed to protect your personal information. We implement and maintain reasonable security measures appropriate to the nature of the personal information that we collect, use, retain, transfer, or otherwise process.
However, data security incidents and breaches can occur due to a variety of factors that cannot reasonably be prevented; therefore, our safeguards may not always be adequate to prevent all breaches of security.
