7. “DO NOT TRACK” SETTINGS. Because we track website usage information through the use of cookies, pixels and other tracking mechanisms, your selection of the “Do Not Track” option provided by your browser may not have any effect on our collection of cookie information. The only way to completely “opt out” of the collection of any information through cookies or other tracking technology is to actively manage the settings on your browser to delete and disable cookies and other tracking/recording tools. However, getting a “Do Not Track” signal to work as you might want is difficult.  Using browsers as an example, not all tracking technologies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser might be recognizable even if you disable a tracking technology; not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose, data still may be collected for another; and even if one website observes a “Do Not Track” signal, that website usually will not be able to control other websites.



8. LINKED SITES. The Site contains links to other sites (“Linked Sites). We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of any Linked Sites. Such linked Sites may collect personally identifiable information from you that is not subject to our control. The data collection practices of Linked Sites will be governed by that particular site's privacy policy.



9. ACCESSING, UPDATING, OR DELETING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. If your personal information changes, please contact us by using the online forms provided on the “contact us” section of the Site. We will make good faith efforts to resolve requests to correct inaccurate information except in those cases where the request is unreasonable, requires disproportionate technical effort or expense, jeopardizes the privacy of others, or would be impractical. If your Account is terminated for any reason, your information will no longer be accessible through your Account or associated with your Account. However, activity that occurred prior to deletion may still continue to be stored on our systems or the systems of our service providers for an indefinite period of time.
