8. Protecting Your Personal Information
We implement and maintain reasonable data security safeguards appropriate to the nature of the personal information that we collect, use, retain, transfer or otherwise process. Our policy is to restrict access to your personal information to only those employees, service providers and other third parties who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain commercially reasonable physical, technical, and administrative safeguards consistent with industry standards and other applicable standards as required by law and we require service providers and third parties to do the same.
While we are committed to developing, implementing, maintaining, monitoring and updating a reasonable information security program, unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Data security incidents and breaches can occur due to vulnerabilities, criminal exploits or other factors that cannot reasonably be prevented. Accordingly, while our reasonable security program is designed to manage data security risks and thus help prevent data security incidents and breaches, it cannot be assumed that the occurrence of any given incident or breach results from our failure to implement and maintain reasonable security. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal 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 website cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party.
