How do we protect your information?

We use a variety of multi-level security measures, in order to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, destruction or loss of a user’s personal data under our control. The measures include conventional physical security, firewalls, data encryption, passwords and backup copies.

After a transaction, if applicable, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.

Regardless of the precautions taken by us or by users, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information the user transmits to us.

Do we use cookies?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the sites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers.
