How We Share Your Data. In general, we will not disclose your personal data we collect through this Site except with your consent or as described in this Policy.

We endeavor to choose affiliates and non-affiliates with similar standards to ours regarding the protection of data.

Legal Process, Security, Defense, Protection. It is possible that we will need to use or disclose information about you if required by law, subpoena, or other legal process.

In no case will we sell or license your personally identifiable information to third parties, except as set forth above or as required or permitted by law.

Social Media Plugins.  This Site may use social media plugins (e.g. Facebook and LinkedIn) to enable you to easily share information with others.  When you visit our Site, the operator of the social plugin can place a cookie on your computer, enabling that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited our Site.  If you are logged into the social media website (e.g. Facebook, Twitter) while browsing our Site, the social plugins allow that social media website to share data about your activities on our Site with other users of their social media website.  For example, Facebook Social Plugins allow Facebook to show your Likes and comments on our pages to your Facebook friends.  Facebook Social Plugins also allow you to see your friends’ Facebook activity on our website.  We do not control any of the content form the social media plugins.  For more information about social plugins from other media websites you should refer to those sites’ privacy and data/information sharing statements/policies.

Safeguarding of Information. No system for safeguarding personal or other information is 100% secure and even though we have taken steps to protect your personally identifiable information from being intercepted, accessed, used or disclosed by unauthorized persons, we cannot fully eliminate security risks associated with personal information.  However, we take a number of steps to safeguard the security of personally identifiable information obtained through the Site. For example, we maintain administrative, technical and physical controls to reasonably safeguard data from unlawful use, unauthorized access or disclosure.

Do Not Track“Do Not Track” is a privacy preference that you can set in your Internet search browser that sends a signal to a website that you do not want the website operator to track certain browsing information about you.  However, because our Site is not configured to detect Do Not Track signals from a user’s computer, we are unable to respond to Do Not Track requests.   This Site does not collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across different Web sites when a consumer uses our Site or service.

Links to Third Parties’ Sites.  We may provide links to websites or resources outside of our Site for your informational purposes only.  You acknowledge and agree we are not responsible for the availability of such sites or resources, and do not endorse and are not responsible or liable for any content, advertising, goods, services or other materials on, available through or provided by such sites or resources.  We are not responsible for the privacy or other practices of such sites and cannot guarantee the security of any of your personal information that you provide or may be collected by such sites.  We encourage you to review the privacy policies and terms and conditions on those linked sites.

Submitting Consumer Rights Requests. To submit any of the Consumer Rights requests as outlined above, please contact us at (716) 684-3333 and [email protected].

If the Company requests, you must provide us with sufficient information to verify your identity and/or authority to act on behalf of the consumer. We may not be able to respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.  However, making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.  We will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of receipt, but we may require an extension of up to forty-five (45) additional days to respond and we will notify you of the need for the extension.
