We take commercially reasonable technical and procedural efforts to ensure that Personal Information collected from you is protected against loss and unauthorized access. This protection applies in relation to all Personal Information stored in both electronic and hard copy form. We use industry standard security techniques to help protect against the loss, misuse, or modification of information that you have provided. While we have implemented the above security measures, you should be aware that 100% security is not possible.
