Securing your Personal Information

The security of your personal information is important to us. We take all reasonable precautions to ensure that your personal information is kept safe from loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. Among the steps taken to protect your information are:

  • premises security;

  • deploying technological safeguards such as security software and server firewalls to prevent hacking or unauthorized computer access;
  • internal password and security policies; and
  • secure socket layer technology (SSL).
    When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers) on our website, we encrypt that information using SSL. When Credit Card details are collected, we simply pass them on in order to be processed as required. We never store Credit Card details. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
