Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit history data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon in your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. Placement of this icon varies by website browser. 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. If you feel that we are not abiding by this Policy, you should contact us immediately via telephone at 1-888-502-8008.

At your option, you may also provide demographic information (such as gender or age) about yourself, but it is not required.
