Embedded Content

Occasionally, we may include helpful content from other websites within our pages (like videos, articles, or images). While we only embed from reputable sources, it’s important to be aware that these external websites have their own privacy policies and data collection practices. If you interact with embedded content, it may function as if you had visited that website directly.

We may update this Privacy Policy. We’ll notify you of changes by posting the new policy on our Website.
