3. General Privacy Information
TradersAgency web site contains links to partners, advertisers and third-party Internet sites and services who may collect data in connection with sweepstakes, promotions, e-commerce, etc. They each have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of TradersAgency web site, and TradersAgency web site has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily and publicly disclose personal information on any online service or Web site—for example on message boards, through e-mail, or in chat areas—that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Furthermore, while we strive to protect your personal information, TradersAgency web site cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
TradersAgency web site utilizes a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. All user contact information is contained behind a “firewall” and only accessible by a limited number of employees who have special access rights to production systems. Passwords and credit card numbers are encrypted in TradersAgency web site’s secure database which is also located behind a firewall. All sensitive credit information supplied by users is transmitted via Secured Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted in TradersAgency web site’s databases as stated above or by third party service providers we have hired to assist us in protecting your personal information.
In the event a user wishes to modify their personal information they may do so by sending an e-mail or calling our Member Services department. See Section 4 for the email address and telephone number. They will be required to submit a valid user ID and password for authentication before they are able to modify their file. If a user has forgotten his or her password or prefers to speak with a customer service representative to modify his or her personal information, he or she may contact customer service. The user will be asked to provide his or her name or user ID and then to verify certain nonsensitive information (i.e., mother’s maiden name) in order to proceed. Because password and credit card information has been encrypted, it is completely invisible to any employee who accesses it, including our customer service team. If a user wishes to change their password, the customer service representative will reset to a new one after the member has properly identified himself or herself.
TradersAgency web site’s technology department conducts frequent site security audits and employs a third-party audit company to perform additional site security audits.
Every TradersAgency web site employee is required to sign a policy which clearly outlines the company’s policy with respect to security and defines the action the company will take with any employee who breaches the policy.
