We may disclose your information in connection with the purposes noted above in the following ways:
We do not sell, rent, or share your personally identifying information to third-parties for their marketing purposes.
In addition to information that uniquely identifies you when you use our digital Services, we also use Tracking Technologies to collect non-identifying standard web server traffic patterns and usage information, such as IP address, browser type, unique device identifier, geolocation, device operating system, website and application usage, browser information, navigation activities, preference settings, and length of website visit information (“Usage Information”). We collect and use Usage Information automatically to measure the success of our marketing campaigns, and compile statistics about digital service usage, conversion, and response rates. We also work with third-party service providers to target advertisements and outreach based on this information, in some cases combining data we collect using Tracking Technologies with other de-identified data.
In addition, we may allow third-party advertisers and their service providers to display content-specific advertisements to you on our digital Services or after you have left our digital Services, such as when you go to other websites. These third-parties may use Tracking Technologies to tailor advertisements to you based on interests shown when browsing our digital Services or by visiting other digital platforms. We do not control the third-party advertisers’ Tracking Technologies or the data collected by them. The use of such Tracking Technologies for advertisements by these third-parties are not covered by this Privacy Notice. We encourage you to review such third-party’s privacy policies and other terms to understand the choices you may have concerning information collected from or about you by these third-parties.
Certain Tracking Technologies may be rejected, disabled, or removed by tools that are available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some but not all instances can be blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. Each browser you use will need to be set separately and different browsers offer different functionality and options in this regard. Also, please be aware that if you disable or remove these Tracking Technologies some parts of our digital Services may not work and when you revisit our digital Services your ability to limit browser-based Tracking Technologies is subject to your browser settings and limitations. For information on managing these preferences, visit All About Cookies at https://allaboutcookies.org/how-to-manage-cookies or consult your Device or browser provider.
Various third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms known as “do not track signals”. For instance, some browsers may have such signal options, although they differ as to if the signal is set as default or must be turned on by the user. Further, there is currently no standard as to what sites and app operators should do with regard to these signals. Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms, although we may consider doing so if an understandable and practical standard is developed and widely adopted.
We implement appropriate physical, technical, and administrative measures to safeguard personal information we collect. However, please note that no method of transmission or storage is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information.
If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please immediately notify us in accordance with the “How to Contact Us” section below.
You may contact us to request access, correction or deletion of information that personally identifies you or that we reasonably link to you. You may also object to our processing of such personal information and request the transfer of such personal information to another organization.

Please note that if you choose not to provide us with certain personal information, this may limit your ability to use certain features of our Services or participate in our programs.
You may also elect to opt-out from receiving marketing emails or test messages from us by following the instructions in the communication, such as by using an “unsubscribe” feature linked from such communications.
Depending on the nature of your information we have collected and its use, we will retain your information for a period required by law and in accordance with our records retention policies and practices.
