parties with your express consent, we will provide for adequate forms of protection over such Personal Data, and
confidentiality and security in the handling and administration of your Personal Data by such third parties in
compliance with applicable law.
Personal Data of Children
We have designed our site for parents and adults, not for children. For that reason, we do not knowingly collect
Personal Data from children who may visit our site, and we do not want to include any such information in our
customer databases. We recommend that parents monitor their children’s use of the Internet.
Management and Care of Personal Data
Wherever your Personal Data is in our possession or under our control, we will take reasonable and appropriate
steps to protect your Personal Data from unauthorized access, collection, use, disclosure, copying, modification,
disposal or similar risks. We shall also take reasonable and appropriate measures to keep your Personal Data
accurate, complete and updated.
We also make an effort to protect your information offline. However, given the nature of the Internet and the fact that
network security measures are not infallible, we cannot assume responsibility for any unauthorized use of your
Personal Data by third parties which are wholly attributable to factors beyond our control.
