We may amend or add to this Policy from time to time by giving you additional privacy notices (“Privacy Notices”), at the time we collect your information, and/or when you choose to take certain actions that affect the use or disclosure of your information. For example, certain pages of this Site may contain Privacy Notices providing more details about the information we collect on those pages, why we need that information, and choices you have about the ways we use or disclose that information.
