Similar to many other websites, we may use “cookies” for information collection purposes. You can opt to have your computer browser not accept cookies. This may affect our ability to deliver you the best experience possible; for example, it may affect our ability to match articles to what topics we think you may be most interested in, or may otherwise impact your user experience.

While the security of your Personal Information is important to us, no method of transmission of electronic information over the Internet or computer storage is absolutely secure. While we will attempt to keep secure your private information, we cannot guarantee this.
In the course of business, we may buy or sell assets or the entire business. If the business controlling your personal information is sold, then your personal information will likely be transferred as well. We will attempt to insure that your personal information is handled in a similar manner after such transfer of control.
If required to do so by law or government, we reserve the release to disclose Personal Identity as well as Non-Personal Identity information. We also reserve the right to disclose Personal Identity as well as Non-Personal Identity information in other extreme situations, such as for purposes, in our judgment, that may impact public health and safety, or to protect the legal and property rights of our websites and businesses or those of others.
