5. Security of Your Personal Information

When submitting sensitive data like credit card information, we use 128-bit secure server technology to protect the information.

Access to certain content on our website will require a username and password. Failure to provide the required Personal Information will prevent access to these pages. By accessing and using our protected and secured pages of the site, you agree (a) to maintain the confidentiality of the username and password you have selected to access this site and (b) to consent to our Terms and Conditions of Use Policy. We strictly protect the security of your Personal Information and honor your choices for its intended use.

We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. We have in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure information collected online. These procedures include the use of encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive data such as credit card information and password-controlled servers with limited access. However, we would like to remind our website users that the Internet is not a secure environment and technology is no substitute for common sense. For this reason, we strongly urge each user (a) to keep login names, passwords and credit card information as confidential and (b) to change passwords when this access information may have become compromised.

Furthermore, we recommend that our users (a) communicate over secure channels wherever possible, (b) disable the automatic login features found in some browsers and (c) empty browser caches regularly.
