PRIVACY POLICY

Our privacy policy explains what information we collect and why we collect it, how we use that information, and the choices we offer, including how to access and update information. Take some time to make yourself familiar with our practices.

This policy was last modified on December 22nd, 2016.

What information do we collect?

We collect information from you when you register on our site, subscribe to our newsletters, or register in our apps.

When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your: name, email address, phone number, or credit card information. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.

How do we use your information?

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

  • To personalize your experience: Your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs
  • To improve our website: We continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you
  • To improve customer service: Your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs
  • To process transactions: Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company for any reason whatsoever, without your consent, other than for the express purpose of delivering the purchased product or service requested.
  • To send periodic emails: The email address you provide for order processing may be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your order, in addition to receiving occasional company news, updates, related product or service information, etc. (Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include an option to unsubscribe at the bottom of each non transactional and non personal email.)

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.

We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.

After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.

Email and attachment security information

We use Google Apps as our primary email service provider. Google Apps supports incoming and outgoing TLS encryption for emails. Please note that Google does have access to emails and attachments sent to and from 52inc email addresses unless extra steps are taken by the sender.

If you require a higher level of security, you can send emails and attachments more securely to the 52inc team using PGP for Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android.
