1. CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We have implemented commercially reasonable security measures and follow generally accepted industry standards to protect personally identifiable information sent to our Website or provided to our Services, both during transmission and afterwards. We have implemented secure HTTP connections to our web applications, and encrypt all data transmissions. We maintain auditing capabilities in order to be able to confirm who has access to data, what IP address is accessing the data, and the specific data accessed.
However, despite our efforts to maintain the confidentiality and security of your account, no method of transmission over the Internet and no method of electronic storage is completely secure. Although we make every effort to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not disclose your password to anyone.
