Please keep in mind that when you provide information to us on a third-party site or platform (for example, via our applications), the information you provide may be separately collected by the third-party site or platform.

Our Data Security, Integrity, and Retention Policies and Practices

The security, integrity, and confidentiality of your information are extremely important to use. We take reasonable steps to maintain the safety of your information.
