How we protect Information
Data security is of great importance to Competize and to protect your Information we take several measures to safeguard the collection, transmission and storage of the data we collect. The Services use industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology to allow for the encryption of personal and financial Information. Although we strive to employ reasonable protections for your Information that are appropriate to its sensitivity, we do not guarantee or warrant the security of the Information you share with us and we are not responsible for the theft, destruction, loss or inadvertent disclosure of your Information or content. No system is 100% secure. Transmitting personal Information is done at your own risk.
To help ensure that these measures are effective in preventing unauthorized access to your private Information, you should be aware of the security features available to you through your browser. You should use a security-enabled browser to submit your payment Information and other personal Information at the Services. If password access is required for certain parts of our Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.
