How does the Site keep Personally Identifiable Information secure?
We maintain strict physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect your Personally Identifiable Information from unauthorized or inappropriate access. All of our employees are familiar with our security policy and practices. The Personally Identifiable Information of our Visitors and Authorized Customers is only accessible to a limited number of qualified employees who are given a password in order to gain access to the information. Workers who misuse personal information are subject to disciplinary action. We audit our security systems and processes on a regular basis. Sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or social security numbers, is protected by encryption protocols, in place to protect information sent over the Internet. While we take commercially reasonable measures to maintain a secure site, electronic communications and databases are subject to errors, tampering and break-ins, and we cannot guarantee or warrant that such events will not take place and we will not be liable to Visitors or Authorized Customers for any such occurrences.
When an Authorised Customer provides information (such as travel and activity information) through online forms, the information is protected using industry-standard SSL encryption. SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, a protocol for transmitting private documents via the Internet. SSL works by using a private key to encrypt data transferred over an SSL connection.
We have also contracted a special agreement with Verisign, an independent third party in order to provide its customers with a secure way to collect information. This assures Authorised Customers that:
- Site has a VeriSign Secure Server ID;
- VeriSign has verified the organizational name and that Site has the proof of right to use it; and
- All information sent to this Site, if in an SSL session, is encrypted and protected against unauthorised disclosure to third parties.
The security of your ERC account also relies on your protection of your ERC account password. You may not share your ERC account password with anyone. ERC will never ask you to send your password or other sensitive information to us in an email, though we may ask you to enter this type of information on the Site, which will always have a URL beginning with https://www.emergencyrescuecard.com.
Any email or other communication requesting your password, asking you to provide sensitive account information via email, or linking to a website with a URL that does not begin with https://www.emergencyrescuecard.com should be treated as unauthorized and suspicious and should be reported immediately to us by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How can Visitors correct any inaccuracies in Personally Identifiable Information?
Visitors and Authorized Customers may contact us to update Personally Identifiable Information about them or to correct any inaccuracies by emailing us at email@example.com
Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?
We provide Visitors and Authorized Customers with a mechanism to delete/deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site's database by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
. However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor's entry without retaining some residual information. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.
