To access certain features and benefits on our Site (collectively, “Services”), you may need to submit, or we may collect, "Personally Identifiable Information" (i.e., information that can be used to identify you) (may also be referred to as “personal data” or “personal information”).
Personally Identifiable Information can include information such as your name, email address, phone number, IP address, and device identifier, among other things. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personally Identifiable Information you submit to us. Inaccurate information may affect your ability to use the Site, other Services, the information you receive when using the Site, and our ability to contact you.

We are committed to protect the privacy and confidentiality of Personally Identifiable Information when it is transferred.
