Links and Advertisements
Our site contains many links to other external Web sites including advertisers. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. You should check the applicable privacy policies of these third party sites.
All information gathered on our site is stored within a database operated by a contractor on our behalf. Sensitive information, such as your password is encrypted for storage. For e-commerce transactions, in certain instances we may transmit your billing information using encryption. Encryption scrambles your credit card number and personal information. However, as effective as encryption technology is, no security system is impenetrable. While we attempt to provide you with a safe Internet experience, all security systems can be breached by persons engaged in willful or malicious criminal conduct. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we provide you with a guarantee that information you supply wonÕt be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the internet.
