If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those Company Services that require registration to participate, such as where you are prompted to log in to the Web Site, or in sections of the Web Site that are customizable.

Generally, the Company uses cookies to remind the Company who you are and to access your account information (stored on our computers) to deliver to you a better and more personalized service. This cookie is set when you "Log In" and is modified when you "Log Out" of the client portal. In addition (even if you have not registered with the Web Site), we use cookies to help us measure certain traffic patterns, which areas of the Web Site you have visited, and your visiting patterns in the aggregate. We use this research to understand how our users' habits are similar or different from one another so that we can make each new experience on the Web Site a better one. For example, we may use this information to better personalize the content and Services that you and other users will see and use on the Web Site.

We take reasonable administrative, physical, and technical precautions to protect your personal data and communications with us.

A client's Web Site preferences are password-protected. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and are fully responsible for all activities that occur under your account.

The Company cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with these provisions. Remember to sign out of your Web Site account and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, though we strive to protect your personal information, the Company cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or Services, and you do so at your own risk.

Once we receive your transmission, we endeavor to maintain its security on our systems.

Information (including registration information, passwords and content) received or delivered or intended to be made available on and through the Web Site may be subject to these and other security or privacy hazards; or it may not reach its destination or reach an erroneous address or recipient. The Web Site is not different than other applications in this respect. Without limitation of the foregoing, although we take seriously the security of all client accounts and other personal and non-personal information associated with our visitors and participants, because of the open communication nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your account will be free from unauthorized access by third parties.
