We use industry-standard security measures to protect any personal information that you may provide to us. Despite our adherence to these standards we cannot guarantee 100% protection from the sorts of activities broadly referred to as “hacking” whose consequence might be a loss of electronic privacy. If such a breach were to occur, we would move rapidly to repair the breach, prosecute the trespasser, and notify you of any violation of your privacy.
