Protecting Your Information
We have implemented various measures designed to secure your Personal Information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure.

We urge you to keep any password(s) used in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or Internet cafe.
