We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

4.3We will use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your account information and other personally identifiable information that we hold in our records.

4.4 We will only retain personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary for us to render the Service you have requested or to which you have given your consent, and for business and/or legal reasons.

Anonymous Data

We use this anonymous data to analyze usage patterns in order to make improvements to our Site.
