Note regarding children: We do not knowingly collect personal information from children. If you are under 13, you may only use the Service with the involvement of your parent or legal guardian and using their account. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child under 13, we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.

You can set your web browser to refuse these cookies, however, some features of our services may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

Information Collected by Others

We may enable other companies to collect usage analytics about our services. These companies may place their own cookies on your device to collect traffic and activity data in order to deliver us relevant metrics and information.

Information We Share With Others

We may also transfer and/or provide information about our users in connection with an acquisition, sale of company assets, or other situation where user information would be transferred as one of our business assets.
