Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject or delete cookies in the “Help” section of the toolbar, but please be aware that certain features or functions of the Site may not work properly if these Tools are disabled.
We use commercially reasonable administrative, physical, and technical measures that are reasonably designed to safeguard your personal information and help protect it from unauthorized access.

Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of children is important to us. For that reason, the Site is directed only to persons who are of legal age to enter a binding agreement and no part of the Site is structured to attract anyone who is defined as a child under applicable law. If you believe that your child has submitted Personal Information to our company, please contact us as detailed in the How to Contact Us section, below, so that we can take steps to delete the Personal Information he or she provided.
EU Users: The United States has not received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR. We rely on derogations for specific situations set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR in order to transfer your personal information across international borders. In particular, we collect and transfer to the U.S. personal information only: (i) with your consent; (ii) to perform a contract with you; or (iii) to fulfill our compelling legitimate interests in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms.
