We take commercially reasonable precautions to have physical, electronic and administrative safeguards in place to protect information gathered through this Site against unauthorized access, disclosure, loss, misuse, and alteration. This includes compliance with related federal and state regulations and may include the use of industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to prevent loss, unauthorized access or use, destruction, hacking, theft, disclosure, or modification of Personal Information.

As a result, we do NOT represent, warrant, or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to or from our Site. You use this Site AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Unless law enforcement officials determine that prompt notification may impede a criminal investigation, we will expediently notify you of any breach of data security on our Site, information systems, or electronic storage database(s) following our discovery of a breach of data security in the case that your Personal Information was, or is reasonably believed to have been, acquired by an unauthorized person in an unencrypted form.
