Furthermore, we will not process your personal information in a way that is incompatible with these purposes.

Nonetheless, no communication via the Internet can ever be 100% secure, and no security measures can ever be assured to be effective. Accordingly, you are advised to use caution and discretion when determining what personal information to disclose to us.
