You can terminate your personal account by contacting help@fightingoctopus.com. If you terminate your account, we may continue to show some of your content in anonymized form.

SECURITY

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet or via mobile device, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.
