While we strive to use a com­mer­cial­ly accept­able means to pro­tect the per­son­al infor­ma­tion you pro­vide, we can­not guar­an­tee its secu­ri­ty. There­fore, you acknowl­edge and agree that we assume no lia­bil­i­ty regard­ing the theft, loss, alter­ation or mis­use of per­son­al or oth­er infor­ma­tion or Con­tent, includ­ing, with­out lim­i­ta­tion, such infor­ma­tion that has been pro­vid­ed to third par­ties or oth­er users, or with regards to the fail­ure of a third par­ty to abide by the agree­ment between us and such third par­ty.

Google’s use of the Dou­bleClick cook­ie enables it and its part­ners to serve ads to users based on their vis­it to web­sites on the Inter­net. Users may opt out of the use of the Dou­bleClick cook­ie for inter­est-based adver­tis­ing by vis­it­ing Ads Set­tings.

The acquir­ing com­pa­ny shall be giv­en access to your per­son­al infor­ma­tion with­out your con­sent. If we sell only a part of our busi­ness, the acquir­ing enti­ty shall have access to your per­son­al infor­ma­tion with­out your con­sent and we may send you a notice regard­ing this sale.

9. Data Security

Once any per­son­al infor­ma­tion comes into our pos­ses­sion, we will take rea­son­able steps to pro­tect that infor­ma­tion from mis­use and loss and from unau­tho­rised access, mod­i­fi­ca­tion or disclosure.
