  • the organization collecting the information,
  • how the information is used,
  • with whom the information may be shared,
  • what choices are available to you regarding collection, use and distribution of the information,
  • the kind of procedures we employ in an effort to hinder the unauthorized access, deletion, alteration, use or disclosure of information you provide to , and bTWISTED,
  • you can correct any inaccuracies in the information you provide to us.
