We have security measures in place to attempt to protect you against the loss, misuse and alteration of your user data that is under our control. In all cases, your information is retained in secure facilities, protected from unauthorized access and kept only as long as is reasonably required. Only authorized employees who have a need to know your information for the purposes described in this policy have access to the information you provide. We have strict non-disclosure contracts with all employees who have access to the databases storing user information or to the servers hosting our services.  We are not liable for any illegal use of your personal information that is beyond our reasonable control.

We will only keep your personally identifiable information for as long as it is required for internal business purposes and in order to satisfy various accounting and legal requirements.
