5. Protection of User Information.

The Website is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make visiting and use of the Website as safe as possible. The Company uses an outsourced server back end in a complete cloud environment. Code repository is stored with an outsourced, cloud-based maintenance system.

User personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all sensitive/credit information supplied is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which is provided to the Company by its DNS provider.

A variety of security measures are implemented when Users enter, submit, or access information in order to maintain the safety of all personal data. Passwords are encrypted using industry standard best practices. Credit card handling is completely outsourced to a vendor, and Company’s communication between its server and the vendor’s server is server-to-server. When Users submit a credit card on the Website, it is submitted over full SSL and encrypted to the server, where it is immediately sent to the credit card processing vendor, then discarded. The Company only maintains a pointer to the credit card data , not the actual credit card data itself.

This step is done through the computer’s or device’s browser settings. Since each browser is slightly different, reference the browser's Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify cookies.

8. California Online Privacy Protection Act (“CalOPPA”).

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. More information can be found here .

10. Children Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”).

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, COPPA puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.

Company does not specifically target-market to children under the age of thirteen (13) years old.

11. Fair Information Practices.

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts that they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be compliant with Fair Information Practices, Company will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

- Notify the Users via in-site notification within seven (7) business days

- Agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.

12. CAN SPAM Act.

The CAN SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial e-mail, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have e-mails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out penalties for violations.

Company collects your e-mail address to p rocess service orders and to send information and updates pertaining to service orders.
