We realize that foremost in the minds of privacy-conscious individuals is the security of information after its submission. All personal information collected in order to enable us to provide you with services is securely stored in databases. Additionally, access to the information stored on our databases is restricted to select employees and other authorized personnel, including those third parties necessary to perform services for us and for you.

If sensitive data is being transmitted, we will utilize security technology to ensure safe transmission. However, note that you should exercise discretion with respect to the submission of any personal or financial information.

We will use appropriate technology to minimize that risk.
