Do I have to Provide You with My Personal Information? 

No.  You can visit our websites without giving us your personal information.  But you will not be able to run the Entrusans IDA program without giving us your personal information.  For example, you can’t have an account with us unless you give us enough personal information so that we can make sure you are who you say you are.  If you set up an account with us and then don’t want to get marketing emails from us, you can opt out by following the prompts in the section of our website you entered to create your account with us. 

Privacy with Regard to Children
