The security of the data stored locally in any of our Software installed on your computing device requires that you make use of the security features of your device.

If we learn of a security system breach, we may attempt to notify you and provide information on protective steps, if available, through the email address that you have provided to us or by posting a notice on the Site. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive such notices in writing.
