Cookies: As is a common practice on many member web sites, we collect data involving your usage through the use of “cookies” (i.e. small text files placed on your computer by member applications), web server logs, and other web tools. This technology allows us to customize your online experience as well as track your use of our system so that we can improve your experience.

By continuing to browse our site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but will also provide controls that allow you to block or delete them. Instructions for blocking or deleting cookies are generally available in your browser’s privacy or help documentation. If you choose to delete cookies, some settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, will be deleted and may need to be recreated.

Furthermore, when you are visiting our member applications, other companies, such as third-party advertisers and sponsors, may be gathering information about you. This Privacy Policy does not cover the collection of information by those other companies and member applications. Although we encourage third parties to provide their own privacy policies, we are not responsible for their activities, such as how they handle the information they collect online.

Using Information Collected

We primarily use the identification information you voluntarily share with us to customize your online experience and to do what you have asked of us. We also use your identification information to tell you about our products and services, but you may instruct us not to send communications to you by contacting us. On occasion, we use your identification information to validate your identity. As for usage tracking data, we primarily use that information to operate and improve our member applications, and to further our marketing efforts. As a general rule, we do not share your information with unaffiliated third parties. We do, however, share your information with our own personnel and our service providers to the extent necessary to fulfill your requests. We do not share your information with unaffiliated third parties for direct marketing purposes. We reserve the right to disclose your information under limited circumstances, such as to cooperate with law enforcement or judicial authorities as required by law or legal process, to protect our own legal rights, or to protect the public good.

Please note that we will retain the information we collect from you for as long as needed to provide the services you request and to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

Whenever you are online or on our applications, you run the risk that the information you give out will fall into the wrong hands. Although we implement and maintain commercially reasonable security procedures and practices to safeguard your privacy,
we cannot guarantee the security of any information you provide to us. We accept no responsibility or liability for the activities of third parties. By using our member applications and applications, you agree to our Terms of Use.

Your Rights Regarding Your Personal Information

If you would like to review the information about you that we have collected through our member applications, or to change that information, you can make that request by contacting us. We may require that you verify your identity before we process your request.

Anti-Fraud Disclosure

Electronic communications such as email, text messages and social media messaging, are neither secure nor confidential. While our company has adopted policies and procedures to aid in avoiding fraud, even the best security protections can still be bypassed by unauthorized parties.

YOU SHOULD NEVER TRANSMIT NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION, SUCH AS CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD NUMBERS OR BANK ACCOUNT OR ROUTING NUMBERS, BY EMAIL OR OTHER UNSECURED ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION. EMAILS ATTEMPTING TO INDUCE FRAUDULENT WIRE TRANSFERS ARE COMMON AND MAY APPEAR TO COME FROM A TRUSTED SOURCE.

If you receive any electronic communication directing you to transfer funds or provide nonpublic personal information, do not respond to it and immediately contact us by telephone or another means. DO NOT USE THE CONTACT INFORMATION DISPLAYED IN THE COMMUNICATION YOU RECEIVED. Such requests are likely part of a scheme to defraud you by stealing funds from you or using your identity to commit a crime.

To notify us of suspected fraud related to your membership, contact us.

Updating Our Privacy Policy

We may, from time to time, change our Privacy Policy. We will notify you of any changes in an appropriate manner, including by email, or by posting our updated Privacy Policy on our member applications and displaying a new “Effective Date.”
