How is my personally identifiable information protected?
We have implemented numerous safeguards to reasonably and adequately protect personally-identifiable information. Our databases are protected by physical, technical, and procedural measures that restrict information access to authorized persons in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Our information systems are maintained behind a software firewall to isolate them from access by other networks connected to the Internet. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.
