What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of your information?

Your Personally Identifiable Information is secure on the Site, consistent with current industry standards. The importance of security for all Personally Identifiable Information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. Your Personally Identifiable Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to your Personally Identifiable Information is available through a password and unique customer ID selected by you. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. In addition, your Personally Identifiable Information resides on a secure server that only our selected personnel and contractors have access to via password. We encrypt your Personally Identifiable Information to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to us.

Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personally Identifiable Information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through the Site cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party. Accordingly, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary, while our systems utilize industry-standard security measures, we will not be liable for security or data breaches that circumvent such security measures.
