Our privacy policy may change from time to time and updates will be posted on this page. While Sing Up reserves the right to change this policy at any time without prior notice, where changes are significant we will provide a more prominent notice (such as a banner message or an email notification). Your continued access or use of the Site and Services after such changes indicates your acceptance of the policy as modified. It is your responsibility to review the privacy policy regularly.
