10. Information Security.

We and respective third-party services/affiliate entities implement data security systems and procedures to secure the information transmitted, processed, and stored on the Site or App, our computer servers, and systems.

Such systems and procedures reduce the risk of security breaches, but they do not provide absolute security, as there is no such thing when it comes to the world-wide network. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that Our Services and our servers are immune to unauthorized access to the information stored therein and to other information security risks.

11. Children’s Privacy.

Our Services are not designed to attract children under the age of 16. Accordingly, we do not intend to collect Personal Information from anyone we know to be under 16.

If you believe that we might have any such information, please click here.

We may transfer your Information (including Personal Information) outside the country in which it is collected or in which you reside (e.g., to the United States), including to a country that may not offer the same level of protection for Personal Information as the country in which you reside. However, in which case we make sure to place all contractual safeguards to ensure your Information is processed in a way that offers an adequate level of protection when it is shared between or among our third-party vendors.

By providing Personal Information and using Our Services, you expressly consent to the use of such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy and to the transfer of your Information to another country (including e.g., the United States).
