The security of your Personal Information is important to us, and we strive to implement and maintain reasonable, commercially acceptable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information we store, in order to protect it from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure. Substantially all information we receive from you or via your use of our Services are copied, stored and managed through computer servers owned or controlled by us. While we attempt to employ security techniques commensurate with industry norms to protect your Personal Information and all other information we may host from unauthorized access by users inside and outside the organization, you should be aware that "perfect security" does not exist on the internet or any other method of electronic transmission or storage; third parties may unlawfully or improperly intercept or access transmissions, personal information, or private communications. As such, we cannot make any assurances or guarantee in any manner that a security breach will not occur that may expose your personally identifiable information to others.
For example, our servers are not located at our principal place of business but rather are managed and located at a third-party Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider (an “IAAS”). We have taken commercially reasonable steps to choose a professional IAAS provider but we cannot guarantee the performance of the IAAS provider, its security measures, or the actions or inactions it takes in the future. By using our Services, you understand and agree that we have no liability for the actions, behaviors or failings of our IAAS provider.
We endeavor to only require the collection of as much Personal Information as required to provide you access to our Services, ensure our ability to send you the communications described above, and meet our legal obligations. In addition, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to attempt to store Personal Information in a secure location. We do not represent that any Personal Information provided to us will be encrypted in any manner.
