FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Some of the information on this Website contains statements of the Company’s expectations, intentions, plans and beliefs that constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are intended to come within the safe harbor protection provided by those sections. You can identify these forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking words such as “outlook,” “believes,” “expects,” “potential,” “continues,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “seeks,” “approximately,” “predicts,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” “foresees” or the negative version of those words or other comparable words and phrases. Any forward-looking statements contained on the Website are based upon the Company’s historical performance and on current plans, estimates and expectations. The use of this forward-looking information should not be regarded as a representation by the Company or any other person that the future plans, estimates or expectations contemplated by the Company will be achieved. These forward-looking statements are based on numerous assumptions that the Company believes are reasonable but are subject to a wide range of uncertainties, and business risks and actual risks may differ materially from those discussed in the statements. Please refer to the documents that the Company files from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), specifically the Company’s most recent Form 10-K and Form 10-Q, which are available on the Website and at www.sec.gov. These documents contain and identify important factors that could cause the results to differ materially from those contained in the Company’s forward-looking statements. These factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with the other cautionary statements that are included in the Company’s filings with the SEC. If one or more of these or other risks or uncertainties materialize, or if the Company’s underlying assumptions prove to be incorrect, actual results may vary materially from what the Company projected. Consequently, actual events and results may vary significantly from those included in, contemplated or implied by the Company’s forward-looking statements. The Company does not undertake any obligation (and expressly disclaims any such obligation) to update or revise the forward-looking statements, except as required by federal securities laws.

When you visit the Website, the Company may collect personal information from you (such as your name, address, phone number and e-mail address) if you voluntarily provide it to the Company. Depending on the purpose for which the information was provided to the Company, the Company may use this information for purposes such as communicating with you regarding the Company’s products or providing you with information that you request.

The Company reserves the right to (i) transfer your personal information in the event that the Company sells or transfers all or a portion of its business or assets to a third party, (ii) share your personal information within the Company, (iii) disclose any personal information to the extent required by law, regulation, subpoena, court order or by a government entity and/or (iv) disclose personal information to third parties if the Company has reason to believe that disclosing such information is necessary to conduct investigations of possible breaches of law or legal rights, to cooperate in any legal investigation, or to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating these terms and conditions.
