Ř      We treat your credit card information differently from other information.  This information is encrypted when stored on our servers.

Ř      We follow industry-standard procedures to protect your information.  All information is processed by redundant servers, stored on redundant disk drives, and backed up daily.  This process minimizes the risk of data becoming lost or corrupted.  We do not share this information with third parties unless instructed by you to do so.

 

4. How can you help keep your information secure?

Ř      The most important thing you can do is to keep your user name and password confidential.

Ř      You

Ř      Your organization’s administrators and members have access to whatever information you explicitly share with your organization.

Ř      Web Partner Group - Members of our staff might be required to access your organization’s information at the request of you or your organization in order to provide service and support.

Ř      However, Web Partner Group may access and/or disclose information if we are required to do so by law, if in good faith we believe that the law requires us to do so, if it protects our legal rights, or in connection with an investigation.

 

7. Does Web Partner Group place cookies on hard drives and, if so, why?

Ř      We use a type of cookie called a session cookie, which is not written to your hard drive.  The session cookie is created in your browser to help us manage your session on Web Partner Group.  The session cookie terminates when your session on Web Partner Group terminates (you log out of your account and close your browser window).  Web Partner Group does not store information on your hard drive.
