Your privacy is a right. Our policy doesn’t take away your right to privacy just because you do business with us. We keep all of your information and data about you on a network that is not connected to the Internet. Your information can not be hacked.
The information we keep on file is data that we need to keep you a client and this data is crucial when we use it to identify you. Any body can contact us and tell us it’s you when it is not you. Your emails can be spoofed which means some one can make an email look like it came from you.
In a word, we do not give any of your data to anyone.
When you pay us you really are paying Pay Pal and then they pay us. Any information you give to them to make a payment stays with Pay Pal. They do not tell us any credit card, checking, or any other financial information about you. Pay Pal tells us who paid us and how much. That’s all they tell us. We don’t want your financial information. Pay Pal has infinitely better capability to keep your data safe than we ever could.
We give all our clients a “secret” number which identifies you. You must never give this number to anyone for any reason. When you give us that number to identify yourself, we will believe it’s you and “open the gates” to our systems. If its not you, you have a problem. That number we give to you is not on a computer network connected to the internet. It cannot be hacked.
Once we give you your secret ID number, we will never again tell you the number, no matter what the circumstances. You have to give the number to us when we ask you for it and we will either accept it or decline it. It you loose the number, you will have to reapply for an account with us. This number determines whether we perform a task for you or we totally ignore your request. It is our only method to absolutely identify you being who you are.
If we receive a subpoena, we have to comply with it if it’s from a legitimate government agency. Just because someone identifying themselves as being a government employee, doesn’t get them personal information. The subpoena must be from a court or an agency that has subpoena power.
Since our clients generally put some personal contact information on their sites, you need to be careful what information you put on your site. You should never put home addresses, home telephone numbers, or other information that can give others the ability to find where you live or work or where you go. You should never give information about other people without getting their permission to make it public.
It’s a good idea to think for awhile before you reveal anything about yourself by making it public.
We also request that you keep information about how our systems work that you may become aware of by doing business with us, private. We want you to respect our privacy which helps to keep hackers from knowing facts about about our systems. We consider our total network to be proprietary.
