5. Do Not Track Disclosures

Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they are aware of them. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, our Sites do not currently process or respond to "do-not-track" (DNT) settings in your web browser. If and when a final standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals.

6. Social Media We maintain a presence on several

social networking and blogging platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, Snapchat, TikTok, and Pinterest.

Through these platforms and features, we receive or may share information about you, and this Privacy Policy applies to that information as well. We do not share call recordings with these providers. In addition, some providers of third-party social media or blogging platforms we utilize have their own privacy policies which explain how the third parties that provide them may collect, use and protect your information (e.g. if you establish an account with such platform providers directly). By using social features, you agree to those third parties' privacy policies and terms of use.

If you choose to communicate with us or another user through social features available on our websites or mobile applications or through our social media pages, or other similar communication or messaging features or services, such information may be made publicly available.For security purposes, please do not include any password, social security number, payment card, or other sensitive information via these features.
