Security Methods used to protect your information.
The company uses security software to protect the confidentiality of your personal information including the use of TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocol and greater than 128-bit encryption utilizing advanced ciphers.
By default, all web properties we own are encrypted using TLS at least version 1.2 and further strengthened by HSTS, Content Security policies, and Feature Policies or Permission Policies if supported by your web browser as well as other security measures.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to our payment providers in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “HTTPS” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment and encrypted.
If you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected. In addition, the Company’s business practices are reviewed periodically for compliance with policies and procedures governing the security and confidentiality of its information. The company’s business practices limit employee access to confidential information and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons.
However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and no data system can guarantee that it is free from error. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant that it will be safe from theft, loss, damage, and/or corruption. By using our Website, you hereby agree that Company and its officers, directors, employees, shareholders, insurers, attorneys, vendors, agents and representatives, shall not be liable for any theft, loss, damage, and/or corruption to your information, including but not limited to your personally identifiable information.
