The California Online Privacy Protection Act requires that we outline our practice as it is
related to federal do-not-track signals that may come from your browser. Because this signal
does not often reflect the preference of our consumers, this website does not respond to it.
Users may, however, request to opt out, as discussed earlier in this Agreement.

For Minors & Children. Protecting the privacy of young children is especially
important. Our Site is not directed to anyone under the age of 21, and as such we do

SECTION 3 – SECURITY
How we protect your information
We use Google Analytics to protect against unauthorized access to, or unauthorized
alteration, disclosure, or destruction of, any data that you share. Google Analytics has a
team dedicated to keeping personal information secure. They maintain administrative,
technical and physical safeguards that are intended to appropriately protect against
accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized
disclosure or access, misuse and any other unlawful form of processing of, the personal
information in our possession. They employ security measures such as using firewalls
to protect against intruders, building redundancies throughout our network (so that if
one server goes down, another can cover for it) and testing for and protecting against
network vulnerabilities. Unfortunately, however, no security system can be 100%
secure, and we cannot guarantee that any information provided to us in connection with
the Service will be free from unauthorized access by third parties.
How we protect your information with respect to third party sites
Mesh Brands neither owns nor controls the third-party websites accessible through the

a link on the Site or otherwise, and before providing any personally-identifying

those steps necessary to, in those users' discretion, protect their privacy.
