In addition to our direct collection of information, our third party service vendors (such as credit card companies, clearinghouses and banks) who may provide such services as credit and insurance services may collect this information from our Visitors and Authorised Customers. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they use personal information provided to them from Visitors and Authorised Customers. Some of these third parties may be intermediaries that act solely as links in the distribution chain, and do not store, retain, or use the information given to them.

We may also use Personally Identifiable Information to contact Visitors and Authorised Customers in response to specific enquiries, or to provide requested information.
With whom may the information be shared?
Personally Identifiable Information about Authorised Customers may be shared with other Authorised Customers who wish to evaluate potential transactions with other Authorised Customers.

All of our employees are familiar with our security policy and practices.

We audit our security systems and processes on a regular basis.
We do not store sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or social security numbers. Were this to be implemented, we would protect all data by encryption protocols, to protect information sent over the Internet. While we take commercially reasonable measures to maintain a secure site, electronic communications and databases are subject to errors, tampering and break-ins, and we cannot guarantee or warrant that such events will not take place and we will not be liable to Visitors or Authorised Customers for any such occurrences.

Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?
We provide Visitors and Authorised Customers with a mechanism to delete/deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site’s database by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor’s entry without retaining some residual information. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.
