In addition to the disclosures described above we may also disclose your personal information with your consent for purposes described at the time we obtain your consent.
We are committed to protecting the security of any personal information you provide. We have implemented reasonable administrative, technical and physical measures in an effort to safeguard the personal information in our custody and control against theft, loss and unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure.

We collect and transfer to the U.S. personal data only with your consent (as provided herein); to perform a contract with you; or to fulfill a compelling legitimate interest of ours in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms.

Please note that even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a third party, these tracking technologies may still collect data for other purposes including analytics and you will still see ads from us, but the ads will not be targeted based on behavioral information about you and may therefore be less relevant to you and your interests.
