We may use any aggregated data derived from or incorporating your personal information after you delete your account, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.
Our Retention Practices.
We may not be able to completely remove your personal information from our systems in certain circumstances.

How We Protect Information
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of your personal information, including using SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions.

We may also use “web beacons” (i.e. “web bugs” or “single–pixel” or “clear” GIFs) on this website. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network’s servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies just as if you had requested a web page from their website.
