We take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, misuse, or destruction.

If you have an account with us, you are responsible for keeping your membership details confidential.

We further protect your Personal Information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology.
