Access and Correction
To access your personal information in the possession of the Company and correct inaccuracies of that information in our records, please contact us in the manner specified in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

The Company takes reasonable measures to safeguard your personal information against unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification, whether or not in electronic format. We use industry-standard technological precautions, such as Secure Socket Layer technology in an effort to protect your personal information as you transmit it electronically from your computer to this Site and, furthermore, to protect it from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Furthermore, the Company requires that employees and third-party administrators/processors access your personal information only on a “need-to-know” basis.
You should keep in mind that no combination of security measures can ever provide guaranteed protection all the time. We caution you that e-mail may be particularly vulnerable to unauthorized interception, eavesdropping, modification and spoofing, and, therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers or other special access features on this Site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
When we receive a formal written complaint, our Privacy Officer will contact the author within a reasonable period of time regarding his or her concerns and attempt to resolve these concerns directly with this individual. In the event that informal resolution of such concerns is not fruitful, a complainant may seek independent review and resolution of his or her complaint by EU Data Protection Authorities. To learn more about the enforcement role of EU Data Protection Authorities, see http://ec.europa.eu/justice_home/fsj/privacy/index_en.htm. If a complainant believes the Company has engaged in possible unfair or deceptive practices and legal or regulatory violations in connection with its privacy obligations, he or she may file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission through its web site http://www.ftc.gov. We will cooperate with the EU Data Protection Authorities and the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to resolve any complaint regarding the collection, disclosure, use and retention of personal information that cannot be resolved between the Company and the complainant.
The Company has in place procedures for maintaining the confidentiality of personally identifiable information. A statement verifying the Company’s compliance with EU Safe Harbor Principles is signed by a corporate officer of the Company at least once a year and will be made available upon request from interested individuals or in the context of an investigation or a complaint alleging non-compliance.
