We take market standard precautions to protect personal data. When users submit sensitive information such as credit card numbers etc. via the Website, such information is protected both online and offline. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information, that information is encrypted and is protected with market standard encryption software - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked. While we use SSL encryption to protect personal data online, we also take market standard steps to protect it offline. Access to the personal data is given on a need-to-know basis.
