1. The Information Collected
Any and all information that you provide to us or that we collect about you on this website is called personally identifiable information (PII). You might subscribe to something we offer, express an opinion, provide your name, email address or other information, or describe your situation. It is possible that our servers might automatically collect information about you such as your online behavior and your computer, mobile or other device. The information collected may include things such as the make, model, settings, specifications and geographic location of you and/or your computer, mobile or other device, as well as date/time stamp, IP address, pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, the site, application, destination, and/or service you arrived from, and other clickstream data. All of this is PII.
If you choose to use any third party social networking service that may be integrated with this website in the future, we may receive additional PII including information about your contacts on those services. For example, some social networking services allow you to push content from this website to your contacts.
We use your PII to administer your account, fulfill your requests for and provide you with access to our services, programs, and products, to respond to your inquiries about our offerings, and to offer you other services, programs, or products that we believe may be of interest to you. We may use this information to communicate with you when we make changes to our agreements, to fulfill a request by you for an online newsletter, or to contact you about your account with us. We may use the information you provide to provide an interactive experience for you on this website.
We will not sell or rent your PII to anyone. We will not disclose your PII to third parties unless the government requests your PII, in which case we will make an effort to notify you if possible and we will not disclose the information unless we are satisfied they are entitled to the information. Our service providers such as offsite servers and email service providers are bound by their own privacy policies and applicable law.
We take precautions and have implemented measures intended to protect against unauthorized access to, loss of, disclosure of, and unlawful interception of PII submitted via this website. We also limit internal access to PII to a “need-to-know” basis. However, because no data transmission is completely secure, and no system of physical or electronic security is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of the information you send or the security of our servers, networks or databases. Your communications containing PII may be unlawfully intercepted or accessed by third parties and/or this website may be subject to network attacks or malfunctions. Accordingly, we cannot and do not guarantee that your PII or any other information is completely secure and safe from any risk, and you provide information to us at your sole risk. By using this website you agree that we are not responsible for any inadvertent loss of such information or the consequences thereof.

6. Your Access to Your PII
If you would like to know whether we have collected PII about you, send us the activities that you participated in on this website. After reviewing the relevant databases, we will confirm whether or not we have collected such information about you. If you request, we will change any inaccuracies in the PII we have that pertains to you, and/or end any direct communications with you, or even delete your PII. Even after such modification or deletion, there may be residual information that will remain accidentally within our databases that may or may not contain PII. This residual information, if any, will not be given to any third party or used for any commercial purpose. Our intention is that this website shall comply with all applicable privacy laws with respect to collection of personal information.

If you are the owner or an agent thereof, of material that was removed from the Website or disabled after we received a copyright infringement notice, and you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of
