Storing And Transferring Your Personal Information

Nevertheless, transmission via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of information about you.

Our Policy Towards Children

The Service is not directed at persons under 18. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information (as defined by the U.S. Children’s Privacy Protection Act, or “COPPA”) from children.

Additional Disclosures For Nevada Residents

Nevada law (NRS 603A.340) requires each business to establish a designated request address where Nevada consumers may submit requests directing the business not to sell certain kinds of personal information that the business has collected or will collect about the consumer. A sale under Nevada law is the exchange of personal information for monetary consideration by the business to a third party for the third party to license or sell the personal information to other third parties. If you are a Nevada consumer and wish to submit a request relating to our compliance with Nevada law, please contact us at legal@thesykstem.com.
