We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in with a password more than once, saving time on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance and personalise the experience on our site. The usage of a cookie is not linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the Web page’s address.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers where we store personally identifiable information are kept securely. We use Salesforce to store all.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
Personal Information Retention
To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the type and volume of the information, the negatives that can result from unpermitted access to such information, why we gather such information and the availability of achieving the goals of such gathering through alternative means.
