Personal Information Practices

Retention — We will retain personal information only for the duration it is needed to conduct our business and ensure statutory compliance. Once personal information is no longer required, it will be destroyed promptly, safely, and securely. However, certain laws may require that certain personal information be kept for a specified amount of time. Where this is the case, the law will be followed. The company will take every reasonable precaution to protect personal information with appropriate security measures, physical safeguards, and electronic precautions.
Access — access to personal information is authorized only for the employees and other agents of the company who have a need to know the information to perform their duties. Under no circumstances will the company sell, distribute, or otherwise disclose personal information, including personal contact information, to third parties, unless so required by law.
