Legal Information About the Website
This website is intended for use only by individuals 18 years of age and older. All users are bound by our privacy policies.
Definition of Personal Data
Information that is used to confirm your identity or authenticate you as a user is considered personal data.
Our website collects personal data by way of your input, including first and last name, date of birth, birthplace, physical address, email, and signature, and automatically (IP address).
We may collect and use your personal information each time you visit our website. Third parties may provide redirects or outgoing connections from our domain to third-party sites.
Our website has no affiliation or control over third parties’ usage of data or privacy policies. Before you use a third-party site, we strongly recommend that you read their privacy information.
Among the limited ways that a website may collect users’ data are:
– Direct interactions: This includes information that users supply voluntarily in the forms on a website (subscription, application, contact forms, etc.). This includes contact information provided when users navigate to the Contact Us page and reach us by web form, phone, email, etc.
– Automated technology: Our webpage saves some personal information automatically, including IP address or browsing activity within our site.
Users might voluntarily share information beyond what our website directly requests. Please be aware that by doing so, you grant permission to our website to use this information to fulfill the purpose for which you sent it to us.
When submitting information, including through our newsletter subscription form, please be sure to provide accurate, up-to-date information to ensure we’re able to reach you with important updates.
Our website is not liable for incorrect, false, or misleading information provided by users.
Permission must be granted for one user to provide personal on behalf of another. If a user is filling out an application for a minor, permission must be granted by that minor’s parent or legal guardian.
- If a user requests information about an adult from someone other than the adult in question, we may inform that person of the request for their data. If the person in question objects to the use or submission of their data, we will not proceed with any registration, application, or other services on our website.
- If a user requests private information about a minor without the agreement of their guardian, we may notify that minor’s parent or legal guardian. If the guardian in question objects to the use or submission of the minor’s data, we will not proceed with any registration, application, or other services on our website.
