HOW WE SECURE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
When you submit Personal Information via our website(s) or through our Services, your Information is protected both online and offline. Prevention of unauthorized access or disclosure of data is of the utmost importance. Physical, administrative and technical procedures are employed to safeguard Personal Information.
All data transactions occurring over a public network (i.e. the Internet) are encrypted using SSL technology. Specific certifier details can be inspected in your browser during a secure session (see browser-specific help for details).
Access to Personal Information and data by our employees is limited to those persons or agents of our company that have a specific business purpose for maintaining and processing such information. These individuals are made aware of their responsibilities to protect the security of that information and also uphold the principles of confidentiality and integrity.
The safety and security of your Personal Information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Website(s), you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. Please do not share your password with anyone. Sharing of account passwords is considered an acceptable use violation and may result in loss of access to our Website(s) or Services.
Unfortunately, new vulnerabilities arise in the realm of technology every day. Although we strive to protect your information, circumstances beyond our control may compromise that goal. As with any website, please be conscious of the information you share. If you are not comfortable providing any Information, it is your right to withhold it.
HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We will retain your Personal Information for the as long as reasonably necessary to serve the purpose(s) for which it was collected, and thereafter for the time period required or allowed by applicable law.
