Users of our site are always notified when their

Contact information will not be shared with any third parties unless
we give prior notice and choice. Though we may use an intermediary

changes (such as postal code, phone, email or postal address), we
provide a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate users' personally

identifiable information in a manner different from that stated
at the time of collection we will notify users via email or by posting
a notice on our Web site for 30 days.
