Accuracy and Safeguards
We will take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information against loss, theft, unauthorized access, disclosure, use or modification.
Unfortunately, no data transmitted over the Internet is ever 100% secure. As a result, we do not warrant your personal information will be protected against loss, misuse, interception or alteration and we not accept any liability for personal information submitted to us via the Internet. Further, we are not liable for any third parties’ use or misuse of your personal information.
Our Privacy Officer can answer your questions and help you understand what of your personal information we collect, use or disclose. If you have concerns about the accuracy or completeness or your personal information, our Privacy Officer can work with you to correct your personal information.
There may be times when we are either required or permitted to not provide you with information about our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information. In those cases, we will provide you with an explanation for our refusal.
