COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGY
Like many websites, we use tracking technologies such as cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to record your preferences, and track the use of our App. We may also use these technologies to monitor traffic, improve the App, and make it easier to use and more relevant.
Some content or functions on the App may be served by unaffiliated third parties. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. We are not responsible for the content or privacy practices on any website not operated by us to which our App link or that link to our App.

If you choose to decline cookies, certain features of our App, including the App themselves, may not function properly or remain accessible to you. In addition, you may also render some web beacons unusable by rejecting or removing their associated cookies. Note that if you choose to remove cookies, you may remove opt-out cookies that affect your advertising preferences.
Similarly, you can learn about your options to opt-out of mobile app tracking by certain advertising networks through your device settings. For more information about how to change these settings for Apple, Android or Windows devices, see:
Please note that opting-out of advertising networks services does not mean that you will not receive advertising while using our App or on other websites, nor will it prevent the receipt of interest-based advertising from third parties that do not participate in these programs. It will, however, exclude you from interest-based advertising conducted through participating networks, as provided by their policies and choice mechanisms.
HOW WE SECURE YOUR INFORMATION
We take reasonable security measures to help protect the personal information collected through our App. Please understand, however, that while we try our best to safeguard your personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
