A session is the period of active site-use while that unique visitor is linked to our website.

This enables the visitor to input their information once and have the information appear later during the enrollment process.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings.

These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

California Online Privacy Protection Act


CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. - See more at:

According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

- Users can visit our site anonymously.

- Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website.

- Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy' and can easily be found on the page specified above.

Privacy Policy changes:

We reserve the right to make changes to this privacy policy at any time by giving notice to our users on this page. It is strongly recommended to check this page often, referring to the date of the last modification listed at the bottom. If a User objects to any of the changes to the Policy, the User must cease using this website and can request her/his personal data to be removed. Unless stated otherwise, the then-current privacy policy applies.

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act) compliance:

We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act), we do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age.

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

​Fair Information Practices:


The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:


-We will notify you via email within 7 business days
