We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. These employees are educated about the importance of safeguarding your information and we are committed to holding them accountable for protecting your information and confidentiality. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
