Third-party disclosure

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information or general information. Your personally identifiable information may be accessible to website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our Site so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law or legal process.

Third-party links

For your convenience and to improve the usage of the Site, we may insert links to third parties on this Site. This privacy policy does not apply to such third party websites. These links take you outside our Site and are beyond our control. The sites those links can take you to have their own separate privacy policy and we are not responsible for the content and activities of those sites. Your visits and access to such websites is at your own risk.


A cookie is a small string of information that the website you visit transfers to your computer for identification purposes. Cookies can be used to follow your activity on websites and that information can help websites understand your preferences and improve your browsing experience. You can turn off all cookies, in case you prefer not to receive them. You can also have your computer warn you whenever cookies are being used. For both options you have to adjust your browser settings (such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, or other browser). There are also software products available that can manage cookies for you. Please be aware, however, that when you choose to reject cookies, this choice may limit the functionality of the website you visit and you may lose access to some of its features.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy.

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:
Users can visit our Site anonymously.
Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our Site.
Our Privacy Policy link includes the word “Privacy” and can be easily found on the page specified above.
Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy Page.

How does our Site handle do not track signals?

We honor do not track signals and do not track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.

Does our Site allow third-party behavioral tracking?

It’s also important to note that we do not allow third-party behavioral tracking.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

We do not specifically market to children under 13.
