HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
We take the security of the information we collect and maintain very seriously. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosures, we utilize physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect all the information we collect and maintain, including any personal information you voluntarily provide.
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information and to reduce the risk of accidental destruction, loss, unauthorized disclosures, alteration, or access, including:
- Password protection, encryption, and use of secure communication transmission software (known as “secure socket layering” or “SSL”) to protect our Site;
- Placing confidentiality requirements on our employees and service providers;
- Destroying or permanently anonymizing personal information if it is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected; and
- Following strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of your personal information to prevent unauthorized access to it.
Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide appropriate security for the information we collect and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches. While we take technical and organizational measures to safeguard your personal information, no transmission over the internet can ever be guaranteed to be secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of any personal information that you transfer over the internet to use and any such transmission is at your own risk.
As the security of personal information depends in part on the security of the computer or device you use to communicate with use and the security you use to protect usernames and passwords, you should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, computer, and web-enabled devices by signing off after using a shared computer, inserting a password on your web-enabled device, choosing a password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, keeping your password private, and periodically changing your password. You should never share your log in information with others. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords, or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
HOW LONG DO WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
We will store your personal information for as long as is reasonably necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. Where your information is no longer needed, we will ensure that it is disposed of in a secure manner. In some circumstances we may store your personal information for longer periods of time, for instance where we are required to do so in accordance with legal, regulatory, tax, or accounting requirements.
In certain circumstances, we may store your personal information for longer periods of time so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the events of any complaints or challenges, or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation relating to your personal information or dealings.
