We make reasonable efforts to protect your information by using physical and electronic safeguards designed to improve the security of the information we maintain. However, because no electronic transmission or storage of information can be entirely secure, we can make no guarantees as to the security or privacy of your information.

Your Rights

If you wish to be informed what personal information we hold about you and/or if you want it to be removed from our systems, please contact us at or by clicking this link.

In certain circumstances, for instance if you are located in the EEA or the UK, you may have the right to access and/or receive a copy of any personal information we hold about you, to update and correct any personal information held about you that is found to be inaccurate, restrict or object to the processing of your personal information,  to request the deletion of any Personal Information held about you, or exercise your right to data portability to easily transfer your personal information to another company. You may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us regarding the processing of your personal information at any time and free of charge. We will apply your preferences going forward and this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before you withdrew your consent. In addition, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, including in your country of residence, place of work or where an incident took place. You may exercise these rights by contacting us using the contact details at the end of this Privacy Policy.  Before fulfilling your request, we may ask you to provide reasonable information to verify your identity.  Please note that there are exceptions and limitations to each of these rights, and that while any changes you make will be reflected in active user databases instantly or within a reasonable period of time, we may retain personal information for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, satisfaction of legal obligations, or where we otherwise reasonably believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so.


Personal information collected shall only be kept for as long as required to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected. However, in some circumstances, we may retain personal information for longer periods of time, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, tax and accounting requirements, or if required to do so by a legal process, legal authority, or other governmental entity having authority to make the request. 

In specific circumstances, we may also retain your personal information for longer periods of time corresponding to a statute of limitation, so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges.
