- Protection for Children. This Website is not intended for, and we have no intention of collecting personally identifiable information from, children under the age of 13. Additionally, if you are 13 years old or younger, you are not authorized to register or submit any content or information to this Website without the explicit consent of your parent or legal guardian. If you live in a state where consent of a parent or guardian is required if you are under the age of 18, you may be required by us to secure such consent prior to your registration with the Website. If a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, that child’s parent or legal guardian should contact us if they would like the information submitted by the child deleted from the Website. We will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our Website database as soon as possible following our receipt of your request. To request such removal of your child’s information, you should contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

If you do not want to receive email or other communications from us, please check-off the option in your personal profile which indicates your request not to receive any such communications. You may change this option at any time. You may also send an email to us at the following address requesting to be removed from our mailing list: email@example.com
Please note that there might be a brief delay between when you submit your request to “opt-out” and when it is processed and reflected in our systems; accordingly you may continue to receive communications from us for a limited time after you unsubscribe. We appreciate your patience.
- Security. We are committed to using our best efforts to maintaining the security of your Personal Information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we adhere to industry standard practices and procedures to help protect and secure the information we collect. We strive to offer you a secure and safe environment for your online credit card purchases. Although we use our best efforts to protect the security of your Personal Information and our system, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, no transmission via the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of this and other factors beyond our control, we cannot guarantee the security of the information that you transmit to or through our Website. Therefore, you assume that risk by using the Website.

Such content may include contests, sweepstakes or promotions. In connection with such opportunities, the relevant third parties may obtain Personal Information that you voluntarily submit to participate in such opportunity. We have no control over the use by such third parties’ of such information.
