How We Protect Your Personal Information
We know it takes confidence and trust to share personal information online. We endeavor to keep your confidence and maintain your trust by protecting your personal information. To that end, we maintain reasonable standards of security and confidentiality. Bazingo Inc.’s computers have security measures, such as firewalls, to protect against the loss, misuse and/or alteration of the information under Bazingo Inc.’s control. Bazingo Inc. also maintains physical and procedural safeguards to protect information under our control and to restrict access to those employees and agents who have a need to know in order to provide services to you and/or operate our business.
Notwithstanding such measures, Bazingo Inc. cannot guarantee that its security measures will prevent its systems and computers from being illegally accessed and the individual information on them stolen or altered. Despite our efforts, as with most Internet sites and businesses, it is possible that third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions of private communications and/or unlawfully gain access to protected computers. No method of data collection, transmission or storage is 100% secure, and we cannot warrant such absolute security. Whenever you provide personal information online, you accept this risk, including when you share your personal information with us and our affiliated entities.
Notwithstanding these inherent risks, we make a concerted good faith effort to ensure that your personal information is protected by maintaining the reasonable standards of security and confidentiality mentioned above.
