Access and Correction. Our Website allows you to access and edit most of your basic account information directly.

Because your privacy is important to us, we will ask you to verify your identity or provide additional information before we answer the above requests. We may also reject your request to access or update your personal information for a number of reasons, including, for example, if the request is unlawful.

We use commercially reasonable measures to help protect information from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, please be aware that, despite our measures, no data security measures or method of transmission over the Internet or means of electronic or physical storage, is guaranteed to be absolutely secure.

Any personal information that is required for the purposes of enforcing and executing agreements with users (for example, subscription packages to access advanced features) will be held for the duration of the contractual relationship and may be held for (a) a longer period of time where there is a legal or regulatory reason to do so (in which case it will be deleted once no longer required for the legal or regulatory purpose) or (b) a shorter period where you object to the processing of your personal information and there is no longer a legitimate business purpose to retain it.
All other personal information will be retained for as long as necessary for record retention and legal compliance purposes.
9. COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Website, while others allow us to track your activities at our Website. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.
Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity as you move through our Website.
Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity, and to display advertising on third-party sites.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags and other similar technologies. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Website to, among other things, track the activities of site visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about site usage. We also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e- mails are forwarded.
