8. SECURITY MEASURES

We use the SSL/HTTPS pro­to­col thro­ug­ho­ut our site. This encrypts our user com­mu­ni­ca­tions with the ser­vers so that per­so­nal iden­ti­fi­ab­le infor­ma­ti­on is not captured/hijacked by third par­ti­es wit­ho­ut aut­hori­za­ti­on.

In case of a data bre­ach, sys­tem admi­nist­ra­tors will imme­dia­tely take all nee­ded steps to ensure sys­tem integ­rity, will con­tact affec­ted users and will attempt to reset pass­words if nee­ded.

9. YOUR DATA RIGHTS

You can also request that we era­se any of the per­so­nal data we have stor­ed. This does not inc­lu­de any data we are obli­ged to keep for admi­nistra­tive, leg­al, or secu­rity pur­pos­es. In short, we can­not era­se data that is vital to you being an active cus­to­mer (i.e. basic account infor­ma­ti­on like an email add­ress).
