Do Not Track Disclosures

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not- track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates. It may not be clear at times whether users intend to transmit these signals or whether they are even aware the website emits these signals. There is no industry standard about what websites should do when they receive these signals. We currently disable the trace and track feature on our Site.

Our third-party partners, such as ad networks, social media and other networking platforms collect information about your online activities over time and across our Site and other online properties. These third-parties do not change their tracking practices in response to Do Not Track settings on your web browser and we do not require these third-parties to honor Do Not Track settings. Information about how to opt-out from your data being used by third-parties can be found above under “Opt-Out and Opt-In”.

We may also share your personal information when we believe, in good faith, that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or property, or to protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud or respond to a government or judicial or other legal request or requirement to comply with the law. We may also use your personal information in connection with a corporate change or dissolution, including a merger or acquisition, reorganization, consolidation, bankruptcy, liquidation, sale of assets, or wind-down of our business.
