This information is used to help us understand how our Services are being used and to improve the user experience.

We take the security of your personal information seriously and use appropriate measures to protect it from unauthorized access, disclosure, or destruction. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information.
