We are committed to using all reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect the Personal Information that you provide to us. When inputting information onto our website, sensitive information (such as credit or debit card information) is encrypted and protected via SSL encryption, and is subsequently transferred and tokenized by our payment provider.

If you are a California resident you have the following rights under the CCPA legislation:
In your request, please make clear what Personal Information is affected and what changes you would like to make, or let us know what limitations you would like to put on our use of your Personal Information. A record of any changes, deletions or withdrawals of consent will be recorded solely for the purposes of complying with our Legal Obligations under CCPA.
For your protection, we may only implement requests with respect to the Personal Information associated with the particular email address or mailing address that you use to send us your request, and we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request.
You may also designate authority to action any of the above on your behalf but we may need to verify your identity and/or granted authority before we can implement your request.
We will only use and store your Personal Information for as long as it is required for the purposes for which was collected. How long it will be stored for depends on the information in question, what it is being used for and, sometimes, statutory legal requirements.
