We may change this Policy from time to time. Any such changes will be posted here. If we make a material change in the way we use information that allows you to be identified (“Personal Information”), we will prominently note the change on the Site.

We may use cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies to help you navigate the Site, to allow us to learn how you use the Site, and to improve the Site. Cookies are text files we place in your computer's browser to store your preferences. If you decide not to permit cookies on your computer, this may affect your ability to use the Site. From time to time, we engage third parties who use cookies to track and analyze usage and volume statistical information regarding visits to the Site. We use this type of information to understand how our Site is used and improve its functionality. We do not have access to, or control over, third party cookies. These service providers have their own privacy policies addressing how they use such information.

We may use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about how you use the Site and to operate it and improve it. Web beacons are clear electronic images embedded in webpages that can allow us to recognize what portions of the Site you viewed and when you viewed them.

  1. SOCIAL MEDIA. The Site may from time to time include social media features, such as links that allow you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you are visiting on the Site, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature functions properly. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.
  2. The Site may include links to other websites whose privacy practices differ from ours. If you submit Personal Information to any of those sites, your information will be governed by their privacy statements. We encourage you to read the privacy statement of any website that you visit.
  3. When we are in possession of Personal Information, we maintain it using physical, electronic, and managerial safeguards to help ensure the security and confidentiality of such information against reasonably foreseeable risks. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is entirely secure, however. Therefore, while we endeavor to use commercially reasonable means to protect any Personal Information that we may have, we cannot guarantee that no one will ever gain unauthorized access to Personal Information.

  6. DO NOT TRACK. “Do Not Track” is a preference you can set in your web browser to inform websites that you do not want to be tracked. This Site does not respond to “Do Not Track” settings.
  7. LAW; DISPUTE RESOLUTION. This Policy is governed by the laws of the United States of America and the State of New York, without regard to conflict of laws rules. Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, any dispute, claim or controversy concerning, relating to, or arising out of, or in connection with, this Policy or this Site will be settled by final and binding arbitration in the State of New York by a single arbitrator appointed by the American Arbitration Association. In the event of any such arbitration, each party will bear its own attorneys’ fees and costs, unless the claim is based on an applicable statute that provides otherwise.  Any controversy or claims will be kept confidential by the parties and their attorneys and advisors, without publicity, and except as may be required by law, no party or arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration under this Policy without the consent of both of the parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may immediately bring a proceeding seeking preliminary injunctive relief in a court having jurisdiction thereof which shall remain in effect until a final award is made in the arbitration. The decision of the arbitrator will be in writing and binding and conclusive on us and you, and judgment to enforce the decision may be entered by any court of competent jurisdiction.
