We use this information to provide our services to you and to administer the website, as well as for the other purposes set out in this policy.
We also sometimes use “cookies” and “log files” to store your preferences, record session information and collect information on how you visit and access our web pages.

What do we do with the information?
We will only use or disclose your personal information for the purposes for which you have provided it to us, unless:

We use your personal information to deliver our services to you and to keep you up to date with events that may be of interest to you. Our related entities and business affiliates may also contact you about our other services or products that may be of interest to you.

What do we do to safeguard personal information?
We take reasonable steps to preserve the security of your personal information and other information or data processed through the website.
