The Shed Platform and content, and Our privacy practices, may change over time and, accordingly, We reserve the right, in Our sole discretion, to change, add or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason. If We change this Privacy Policy, We will post the revised document here and such revised Privacy Policy will be effective immediately upon that posting. If such revised Privacy Policy includes material changes, We will notify you of such material changes by posting an alert on the Shed Platform with a link to the revised Privacy Policy.
