We will not be liable to Visitors or Customers for any such occurrences.
Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?
Our mechanism for Commenters to delete Personally Identifiable Information from the Site’s database is by contacting us by email. However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Commenter’s entry without retaining some residual information for a certain time.
