As set forth above, if you email us, we may keep your message, email address, and contact information to respond to your message. In certain instances, our response may be provided to third parties as necessary to address certain problems, comments, and requests.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we originally collected it for. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

Also, we may share your Visitor Information or personal information in an emergency if necessary to protect the safety of Company employees, agents, visitors or any person.

Notice to Non-U.S. Data Subjects
From time to time, personal information we collect from data subjects in the European Economic Area or Switzerland (“EEA or Switzerland”) may be transferred to, stored, processed or accessed by, us and other entities who may be based outside of the EEA or Switzerland, for example, the United States.

Your personal data may be transferred to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission or the Swiss government.

For example, each such transfer to a third party will be protected by contractual commitments and further assurances (where appropriate) such as the European Commission’s approved Standard Contractual Clauses.
