Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiration date, unless deleted by you prior to the expiration date; a session cookie will expire at the end of your use of the Website when the web browser is closed.
a. Unrestricted Information. Content generated by you and posted to the Website, or any of our associated social media sites, is your sole and exclusive responsibility and we have no responsibility or liability for such content. Any information you voluntarily display to the public on the Website will be available to any individual who has access to that content. We cannot and will not guarantee the safety or security of your user generated content. Further, search engines may index your user generated content such that it may be found on and through common search engines. We cannot and will not guarantee the safety or security of your user generated content.
b. Service Providers. In some events we may work with service providers who provide website, application development, hosting, maintenance, and other services. These third parties may have access to or process PII as part of providing such services. We limit the information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions.

d. Legal Compliance. We may disclose PII or other information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with applicable laws, in response to a valid court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or other government agencies. We also reserve the right to disclose PII or other information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to: (i) take precautions against liability; (ii) protect from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses or activity; (iii) investigate and defend against any third-party claims or allegations; or (iv) protect our property or other legal rights, enforce our contracts, or protect the rights, property, or safety of others.
4. Your Rights – We respect your privacy rights and provide you with reasonable access to the PII that you may have provided through your use of the Website. If you wish to access or amend any information or PII we hold about you, you may contact us as set forth in the “Contact” section. You may further control your PII in the following ways:
a. At your request, we will have any reference to you deleted or blocked from our records. We may retain some information you submit for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, satisfaction of legal obligations, or where we otherwise reasonably believe there is a legitimate reason to do so.
b. You may delete your account information at any time. You may also submit a request to delete the PII we maintain about you by contacting us as set forth in the “Contact” section below. When you delete your account, your profile is no longer visible to other users and dissociated from content you posted under that account. Please note that the posts, comments, and messages you submitted prior to deleting your account may still be visible to others unless you first delete the specific content.
d. You may, at any time, decline to share certain PII with us, in which case we may not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality of the Website.
e. At any time, you may object to the processing of your PII, on legitimate grounds, except if otherwise permitted by applicable law. You always have a right to lodge a complaint with data protection authorities.
f. If you receive commercial emails from us, you may unsubscribe or opt-out at any time by contacting us as set forth in the “Contact” section. Please be aware that it may take up to 10 business days for us to process your request. Additionally, even after you opt-out from receiving commercial messages, you may continue to receive administrative messages regarding the Website.
7. Data Security – We follow generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We maintain appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect PII against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of the PII in our possession. This may include, for example, firewalls, SSL technology, application-layer security features, password protection, and other access and authentication controls. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. We also cannot guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If you believe your PII has been compromised, please contact us at the address provided in the “Contact” section. If we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you and the authorities of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.
8. Data Retention – We only retain the PII collected from you for a limited period of time as long as we need such data to fulfill the purposes for which it was initially collected, unless otherwise required by law. If you would like to delete your personal information, you can delete your account at any time. It may take additional time for your personal data to be de-indexed from search engines, depending on those search engines’ practices, over which we may have limited or no control. We will retain and use information as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolution of disputes, and enforcement of our agreements.
9. EU-US Privacy – We make all best reasonable efforts to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation framework as set forth by the European Union regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal data from European Union member countries. We adhere to the requirements of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. We are hosted in the United States and by using the Website you authorize us to transfer, store, and use your PII in the United States and any other country where we operate. Users in the European Economic Area have the right to request access to, rectification of, or erasure of their personal data; to data portability in certain circumstances; to request restriction of processing; to object to processing; and to withdraw consent for processing where they have previously provided consent. These rights can be exercised by contacting us as set forth in the “Contact” section.
