Our Services and emails use your IP address to determine the postal code where you are located when you open the email. This allows us to tailor content to you. The specificity of the location can vary depending on the
device used to open our emails. Your email program may allow you to prevent the pixel tags or images in the emails you receive from us from downloading, which will also prevent our service provider from accessing your location information.

We may also use pixel tags (also known as web beacons, web bugs, and clear GIFs) in providing the Services.

We designed our applications to accept traffic only from Web browsers that permit communication through Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts your
information while it is being transmitted to us. While we implement the above security measures on the Site, we do not guarantee or warrant that such techniques will prevent unauthorized access to information about you that we store, and you should be aware that 100% security is therefore not always possible. We also have implemented other reasonable technical, administrative and physical measures designed to protect the Personal Information in our custody or control from unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure.

Whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them); or
Whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).
