Your Choices and Updating Your Information
Do Not Track – Some web browsers offer a “Do Not Track” setting. However, there is currently no industry standard regarding the meaning of “Do Not Track” and what, if anything, websites should do in response. As a result, we currently may not respond to “Do Not Track” signals. Similarly, third party service providers may not respond to “Do Not Track” signals and may continue to use automatic data collection technologies despite this setting.
Email – You can stop receiving promotional email at any time by following the instructions provided in the email or by contacting us at the address or phone number set forth below.
