Recognition of a Customer’s Expectation of Privacy

How do we protect your information?

This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and site monitoring. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while the Owner strives to protect your personally identifiable information, the Owner cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or receive from the site. This is especially true for information you transmit via e-mail. The Owner has no way of protecting that information until it reaches her. Once the Owner receives your transmission, the Owner make her best effort to ensure its security on her servers.
