The following additional information relates to our privacy practices:

  • Transmission of Information to Other Countries. We may transmit your information between or among our affiliates.

These links are not intended as an endorsement of or referral to the linked websites. The linked websites have separate and independent privacy policies, notices and terms of use.

We encourage you to read the privacy policy of every website you visit.
