Further, we place high value on protecting your information, and have implemented appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect from you online. By doing that, we seek to protect the confidentiality, integrity, availability, and privacy of your data while keeping your data free from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure, or unauthorized access.
