We use your name and email address to securely confirm your identity. We use your personal information to process and communicate with you regarding your inquiries and requests.

Your personal information will be shared with and processed by our affiliates and certain service providers as necessary to fulfill the purposes set out in this policy, including professional advisors, recruitment firms, consultants and data hosting providers. We make sure anyone who provides a service to, or for us, enters into an agreement with us to follow industry standard security policies, applicable data protection laws, and to keep your information confidential.
We may use your personal information, such as your site visit history, to enhance the information and services we provide. We use your IP address, aggregated with other users, to improve our site and better understand and serve our users.

DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
Some mobile and web browsers transmit “do-not-track” signals. Because at this time, there is no general agreement on how companies should interpret do-not-track signals, we do not currently respond to do-not-track signals, whether a signal is sent or received on a computer or on a mobile device.
