The Site and/or messages sent through or as a function or feature of the Site may contain links to the websites, networks and platforms of various third parties.

However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is perfect or 100% secure. “Perfect” or “100%” security does not exist anywhere. Therefore, Company cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information; and your access and use of the Site, and your opening of any communications, links, downloads or uploads sent through or as a function of the Site, are done at your own risk.
