  • When you visit, we collect information that helps us monitor the site’s health to keep it safe for our visitors, manage backend processes, and develop content. Analytics processes identify your IP address and other types of general usage information, but the anonymous data we view doesn’t disclose your exact location or other personal information.

They will request your preferred payment method and collect personal information necessary to process your purchase. We do not share personal information with third parties, and we do not have access to financial information PayPal collects.

We will provide the first copy of your SAR free of charge. We will charge $15.00 for each additional copy. 

Once you have reviewed your information, please contact us to correct inaccurate information or to remove your personal information completely.


  • If submitting a SAR, you must provide us with proof of your identity.
