  13. International transfer

    Your information may be transferred to – and maintained on – computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction, where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. We may transfer personal information to Australia or elsewhere and process it there. Your consent to this Privacy Policy, followed by your submission of such information, represents your agreement to that transfer.

  14. Amendments

    Like our Terms of Service, we may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we amend this Privacy Policy, we will modify the date listed on this Agreement or we may contact you. You must agree to the amendments as a condition of your continued use of our Site and Services.
