Security

 

Although we may provide certain encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect your confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not and cannot guarantee or warrant that any information transmitted through the Internet is secure, or that such transmissions are free from delay, interruption, interception or error. 

 

The federal government and technology industry have developed practical tips (available at www.onguardonline.gov/) to help you guard against Internet fraud, secure your computer and protect your personal information. 

 

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

 

Credit Card Account Information

 

To gain access to certain resources and features on the Web Properties, users are asked to register and provide payment information and some limited information about themselves. This information is submitted voluntarily.  When our customers choose to pay for services using their credit cards, EQUIstaff submits the information needed to obtain payment to the appropriate credit card clearinghouse. We will, if necessary, provide information to our payment processing vendors and service providers in order to process credit card payments and perform related payment functions. EQUIstaff does not disclose credit card information provided by its members and customers to unaffiliated third parties, unless you authorize us or as is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities.

 

Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. EQUIstaff takes extra measures to protect its customers and is Trustwave secure.

 

We may use the services of third party service providers, for example to process payments and other transactions or to provide analytics services. By using our Web Properties, you grant us all necessary rights and consents under applicable laws to disclose to our third party service providers -- or allow those third party service providers to collect, use, retain and disclose -- any Personal Information for purposes of providing services to you, including data that we may collect directly from you using cookies or other similar means.

 

Data Retention

 

We will retain and use your Personal Information for as long as is needed for us to be able to provide our services to you, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, comply with our internal business practices and standards, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Personal Information is destroyed when it is no longer necessary for these purposes. Our business partners and third-party service providers may have their own data retention policies.

You may choose to prevent us from disclosing or using your Personal Information under certain circumstances (“opt out”).  You may opt out of any disclosure or use of your Personal Information for purposes that are incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or for which you subsequently gave authorization by notifying us by one of the methods escribed at the end of this Privacy Policy, or by following the procedures set forth in an electronic communication from us, if applicable.  Furthermore, even where your Personal Information is to be disclosed and used in accordance with the purposes stated in this Privacy Policy, you may elect to opt out of such disclosure to and use by a third party that is not acting as our agent.  There are some uses from which you cannot opt out, such as to provide features or services that you have requested from us.

 

Please note that making such requests does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of your content. For example, we may retain the information for our own internal records in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Please contact us in the manner described at the end of this Privacy Policy to access your Personal Information in our possession and correct inaccuracies of that information in our records.  We ask individuals to identify themselves and the information requested to be accessed and amended before processing such requests, and we may decline to process requests in limited circumstances, as permitted by applicable laws, rules and regulations.
