How Do We Secure Your Personal Information?
We are dedicated to safeguarding the personal data of our customers and employees. In accordance with this commitment, we comply with the principles of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) when collecting, utilizing, and handling personal data. This includes adherence to principles of legality, fairness, and transparency; limiting data collection to specific purposes; minimizing the amount of data collected; ensuring accuracy; limiting data storage; maintaining integrity and confidentiality; and being accountable for data protection.
We take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, misuse, or destruction. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. The safety and security of your Personal Information also depends on you. For your account used to access the Services, you are responsible for keeping your membership details confidential. We urge you to take steps to keep your Personal Information safe by not disclosing your password and by logging out of your account after each use. We further protect your Personal Information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology. However, these measures do not guarantee that your Personal Information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using the Services, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
We retain your Personal Information while your account is in existence or as needed to provide the Services to you. This includes data you or others provided to us and data generated or inferred from your use of the Services.
