Information We Collect
We collect information that you provide as well as technical data (i.e., information related to your usage of the Site, such as frequency of use or the pages visited within the Site). The Center does not employ tracking devices for marketing purposes.
Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise nor guarantee, and you should not expect, that your personal information will always remain private.
We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes, nor do we send you unsolicited communications for marketing purposes.
