When your personal information is collected there will be a notice outlining our legal authority to collect and use your information, how we will use it and information allowing you to contact someone if you have questions about the collection and use. We may link to other third-party websites or social media platforms on our website. You should review the privacy policies of any linked website or social media platform before providing any personal or other information.
