Your privacy is important to us. Through this document, we would like to give transparency to you on how we handle private data and how we collect, use and disclose your information.
- Personally Identifiable Information
“Personally Identifiable Information” is any information that concerns you individually and would permit someone to contact you, for example, your name, address, telephone/fax number, email address or any information you submit to us that identifies you individually.
Except as provided below, this Platform will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it. Therefore, if you do not want us to obtain any personally identifiable information about you, please do not submit it to us.
You may be able to visit and browse the Platform Website without revealing personally identifiable information about yourself. You may also choose to disclose personally identifiable information about yourself, which may be maintained as described below. This Website may collect personally identifiable information about you.
You may also choose to communicate with us through email, via our website, by telephone, in writing, or through other means. We may collect the information in these communications, and such information may be personally identifiable.
- Non-Personally Identifiable Information
When you visit the Website, like when you visit most other websites, certain anonymous information about your visit is automatically logged, which may include information about the type of browser you use, the server name and IP address through which you access the internet, the date and time you access the site, the pages you access while at the Website, and the internet address of the website, if any, from which you linked directly to the website.

We use the anonymous browsing information collected automatically by its servers primarily to help it administer and improve the Platform. We may also use aggregated anonymous information to provide information to potential business partners and other unaffiliated entities. Again, this information is not personally identifiable.
- Disclosure of Information
We do not provide personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties for their use in marketing directly to you. We may use unaffiliated companies to help it maintain and operate the Platform or for other reasons related to the operation of its business, and those companies may receive your personally identifiable information for that purpose.

If we nevertheless discover that it has received personally identifiable information from an individual who indicates that he or she is, or whom we otherwise have reason to believe is, under the age of 13, we will endeavor to delete such information from its systems. Additionally, a child’s parent or legal guardian may request that the child’s information be corrected or deleted from our files by requesting this via our Contact Us page.
