Where We Store Your Personal Data
The security of your personal data is important to SecondSTAX. We are committed to protecting the information we collect.
Our business is global with affiliates and service providers located around the world. The staff of these affiliates and service providers may be engaged in, among other things, the processing of your transaction, the processing of your payment details, and the provision of support services.
As such, your personal data may be stored and processed in any country where we have operations. Also, your personal data may be transferred to countries that may not have the same data protection laws as the country you initially provided your personal data, but whenever we transfer or transmit your personal data internationally, we will ensure or take reasonable steps to ensure your personal data is handled securely in line with the applicable data protection laws and standard contractual clauses.
By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storage, or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy.
We maintain administrative, technical, and physical controls designed to protect the personal data you provide, or we collect against loss or theft, as well as against any unauthorized access, risk of loss, disclosure, copying, misuse, or modification.
Other security measures include but are not limited to, secure servers, firewalls, data encryption, and granting access only to employees to fulfill their job responsibilities. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access our Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask that you do not share this password with anyone, and the password is always kept confidential.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site or Services; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access in accordance with this Policy.
