How We Protect Your Information

You acknowledge and agree that when your information is shared with third parties, we are not responsible for how those third parties collect or use your information. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of every third-party service that you visit or use, including those third parties you interact with through our services.

How We Protect Your Information

We use a combination of technical tools and security procedures to safeguard your information from unauthorized access. Our computer systems utilize industry-standard security measures designed to prevent unauthorized access. We also have internal policies in place designed to minimize the risk of unauthorized access to your information.

Sensitive Personal Information (such as credit card or debit card details) is encrypted and protected with 128 Bit encryption on SSL. Non-sensitive Personal Information is sent normally over the Internet, and this can never be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. You are responsible for keeping your passwords confidential and not sharing them with anyone.
