Generally, your providing of your personal information is voluntary. However, there may be situations where your providing of personal information is necessary to provide a service or product or is required by law. Please note that in certain cases, we may be unable to provide you with our services or products unless you provide the information. We will let you know when the providing of your personal information is necessary.

If you have any questions about how to prevent us from collecting exact information about your location, we recommend you contact your mobile-device service provider, the device manufacturer, or your web-browser provider. Some online services may not work properly without information about your location. If you would like us to delete information we have collected which could identify your location, please contact us at the address, phone number or email address below. By law, we may need to keep certain information.

There may be times where we may share information when it does not directly identify you. For example, we may share anonymous, aggregated statistics about your use of our online services.

If you do opt out of receiving marketing communications from us, we may still send communications to you about your transactions and any accounts you have with us.

For example, if you opt out of receiving marketing emails, you may still receive marketing text messages if you have opted in to receiving them.
We do not share personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes.
