You may decline to share certain personal information with us, in which case we may not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality of our Services.

Subject to applicable law, you may have the right to request access to and receive information about the personal information we maintain about you, update and correct inaccuracies in your personal information, and have the information blocked or deleted, as appropriate. The right to access personal information may be limited in some circumstances by local law requirements.

Pursuant to California Civil Code Section 1798.83, residents of the State of California have the right to request from companies conducting business in California certain information regarding disclosure within the immediately preceding calendar year of that California resident's personal information to third parties (and in some cases affiliates) for their direct
marketing purposes. Alternatively, the law provides that a company may comply, as we do, by disclosing in its privacy policy that we provide consumers with a choice (opt-out or opt-in) regarding sharing personal information with third parties and affiliates for those third parties' and affiliates' direct marketing purposes, and information on how to exercise that choice. At this time, we do not share personally identifiable information with third parties or affiliates for those third parties' or affiliates' direct marketing purposes. If we do so in the future, we will provide you with a choice prior to sharing your personally identifiable information with third parties and affiliates for their direct marketing purposes. If you do not opt-in or if you choose to opt-out at the time we offer that choice, we will not share your information
with that identified third party or affiliate for its direct marketing purposes.


You have the right to request access to personal data that we may process about you. If you wish to exercise this right, you should:

put your request in writing;

include proof of your identity and address (eg a copy of your driving license or passport, and a recent utility or credit card bill); and

specify the personal data you want access to, including any account or reference numbers where applicable.

We shall provide a copy of the personal data we process. However, for any further copies requested by you, we may charge a reasonable fee for the administration costs.

You have the right to require us to correct any inaccuracies in your data free of charge. If you wish to exercise this right, you should:

put your request in writing;

provide us with enough information to identify you (eg account number, user name, registration details); and

specify the information that is incorrect and what it should be replaced with.

You also have the right to ask us to stop processing you personal data for direct marketing purposes. If you wish to exercise this right, you should:

put your request in writing (an email sent to with a header that says 'Unsubscribe' is acceptable);

provide us with enough information to identify you (eg account number, user name, registration details); and

if your objection is not to direct marketing in general, but to direct marketing by a particular channel (eg email or telephone), please specify the channel you are objecting to.


Because there is not yet a consensus on how companies should respond to web browser-based or other "Do Not Track" ("DNT") mechanisms, we currently do not respond to web browser DNT signals that provide a method to opt out of the collection of information about online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. We may revisit
our policy on responding to these signals, in which case we will post a revised privacy policy on this site.


We take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We maintain reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.
