We use appropriate security measures to protect any personally identifiable information we transmit or store.
Personally Identifiable Information
This Policy applies to personally identifiable information. “Personally identifiable information” is any information that could be used to contact or locate the person to whom it relates (such as name, address, telephone number, or any other identifying information). Personally identifiable information does not include information that is collected anonymously, or information about groups of people rather than individuals.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
Except as otherwise provided in this Policy, we will keep your personally identifiable information private and will not share it with third parties unless such disclosure is necessary and permitted by applicable law to: (a) comply with legal process (such as a court order) or other legal requirements of any governmental authority; (b) protect our rights or property; (c) enforce any terms and conditions of use or agreements applicable to our Website and that incorporate this Policy by reference; (d) protect the interest of users of our Website, other than you, or any other person; or (e) operate or conduct maintenance and repair of our services or equipment, as authorized by law.
In order for you to access certain services that we may offer via our Website or otherwise, we may require you to provide us with personally identifying information. We use personally identifiable information to deliver the services or carry out the transactions you have requested. We also use your personally identifiable information to communicate with you. You may choose not to provide us with any personally identifiable information. In such an event, you can still access and use much of this Website. You, however, will not be able to access and use those portions of the Website that require your personally identifiable information.
Except as otherwise stated in this Policy, we do not use personally identifiable information for any purpose other than the purpose for which the information was originally supplied, or the purposes described in this Policy, unless we have obtained consent from the affected persons.
Whenever we use a call center, mail house, or any other third party who may need to receive or handle personally identifiable information on our behalf, we require them to enter into a written non-disclosure agreement and agree not to use personally identifiable information for any purpose other than the purpose for which we retained them. We also require any third parties we retain to comply with all applicable state, federal, and international privacy requirements.
Whenever we store or transmit personally identifiable information, we use a number of security procedures to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure. Our Website has security measures in place intended to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. We will take reasonable steps to safeguard personally identifiable information we collect from unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration, or destruction.
Security of Your Information
We use appropriate technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect data that pertains to you from loss, misuse or alteration. In addition, we take steps to ensure that our safeguards take into account new known threats. Of course, no organization can guarantee the absolute security of personal information. You should keep in mind that Internet transmissions, particularly email transmissions, are never 100% secure or error-free. Accordingly, we also caution you to guard your own computer and password against unauthorized access by others.
If we experience a business transition that affects the way personally identifiable information is treated in any material way, such changes will be included in an updated version of this Policy posted in the same locations as the previous version of the Policy.
By using our Website, you signify your assent to our Policy. If you do not agree with this Policy, please do not use our Website. Your continued use of this Website following posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.
Other Inquiries, Comments, or Complaints
If you have a concern or complaint about our handling of your personally identifiable information, or if you believe our response to an inquiry has not been satisfactory, please contact SWS at the address below. We will investigate and try to resolve in a timely manner any concern or complaint about our use or disclosure of your personally identifiable information in accordance with the principles contained in this Policy. For any concern or complaint that cannot be resolved in this way, we have agreed to cooperate with the American Arbitration Association to resolve any disputes relating to this Policy. The American Arbitration Association can be contacted at www.adr.org or 1.800.778.7879.
