In addition, if you create an account on the website, account information is password-protected for your privacy and security.

We endeavor (and require our third-party providers to endeavor) to protect the information you provide to us by using technologies designed to secure your information as it transmits to us over the Internet and once it is on our systems. But because of the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that such information stored on servers supporting this website, transmitted to or from a user, or otherwise in our care (or our third-party providers’ care) will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. By using the website, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
You may also choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our website because such information may be required in order for you to: register an account; purchase products or services; participate in a contest, promotion, survey, or sweepstakes; ask a question; or initiate other transactions on our website.
We work very hard to protect your privacy, but we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private. While we use industry-standard precautions to safeguard your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee complete security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
