How We Protect Personal Information

The security of your personal data is important to us. We use robust security measures to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and help ensure the appropriate use of your personal data. We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information provided to us against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. We host our services in a secure server environment that uses firewalls, intrusion detection systems and other advanced technology designed to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, however, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee or warrant its absolute security. If you have any questions about security, you can contact us at privacy@connectpositronic.com. You are responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of your usernames and passwords.
