Security

We endeavor to safeguard and protect our end-users’ personal information.  When end-users make personal information available to us, their personal information is protected both online and offline (to the extent that we maintain any personal information offline).  The privacy of your personal information is very important to us.  When our registration process asks users to submit Sensitive Information, and when we transmit such credit card information, that Sensitive Information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software.

Access to your personal information is strictly limited, and we take reasonable measures to ensure that your personal information is not accessible to the public.  The servers that we store personal information in are kept in a secure physical environment.  We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under our control.  Please be advised, however,  that while we take every reasonable precaution available to protect your data, no storage facility, technology, software, security protocols or data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Computer hackers that circumvent our security measures may gain access to certain portions of your personal information, and technological bugs, errors and glitches may cause inadvertent disclosures of your personal information; provided, however, that any attempt to breach the security of the network, our servers, databases or other hardware or software constitutes a crime punishable by law.  For the reasons mentioned above, we cannot warrant that your personal information will be absolutely secure.  Any transmission of data at or through the Site is at your own risk.

All of our end-users’ personal information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.  Only employees or third party agents who need the personal information to perform a specific job are granted access to personal information.  Our employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all user personal information.  Employees not adhering to our firm policies are subject to disciplinary action.  In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your personal information.  You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach.  Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.
