Recognize that data transmitted online or stored in a facility to which online access is provided cannot be made to be 100% secure.  We believe in protecting your information just as we would want our information protected.

In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, we will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised as may be required by applicable law.
