Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to information collected through third-party websites, applications, destinations, or services linked to from the Service that we do not own or control (“Third Party Services”).  A link to any Third Party Service does not mean that we endorse it or the quality or accuracy of information presented on the Third Party Service.

We encourage you to carefully review the legal and privacy notices of all Third Party Services and other digital services that you visit.

Optional information such as your age or gender may also be requested.

Our servers may also automatically collect information about your computer when you visit the Website, including without limitation the type of browser software you use, the operating system you are running, the website that referred you, and your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address.
