Since we use your personal information to provide Services to you, it is important that the information be as accurate and up-to-date as possible. If, during the course of doing business with us, any of your information changes, please inform us so that we can make any necessary changes.
If Fuller Landau holds information about you and you can establish that it is not accurate, complete and up-to-date, Fuller Landau will take reasonable steps to correct it.
Fuller Landau takes all reasonable precautions designed to ensure that your personal information is kept safe from loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure.
