SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
We use administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information. While we have taken reasonable steps to secure the personal information you provide to us, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. Any information disclosed online is vulnerable to interception and misuse by unauthorized parties. Therefore, we cannot guarantee complete security if you provide personal information.
How we protect your data
SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to the Site, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption system. You know it is an encrypted connection if the address line of the browser switches from “HTTP://” to “HTTPS://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line. When the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, it prevents the data you transmit to the Site to be read by third parties.
The security system includes anti-spam, firewall, malware scanner, site accessibility checking, security and threats audits for WordPress websites. Its security functions provide the latest firewall rules, malware signatures, and database of malicious IP addresses – all that is needed to ensure the security of any website.
The web application firewall detects and blocks malicious traffic. It protects the Site at the endpoint by providing deep integration with WordPress. In contrast to cloud alternatives, it does not violate encryption, cannot be bypassed, and does not contribute to data leakage. It protects from brute force attacks by restricting login attempts.
WordPress Security Scanner:
The malware scanner checks the system files, themes, and plugins for malware, invalid URLs, backdoors, SEO spam, malicious redirects, and code injections. Compares system, themes, and plugins with those which are in the WordPress.org repository, checking their integrity and informing you of all changes. Recover modified files by overwriting them with the original version. Delete unknown and unwanted files easily via the plugin interface. It checks the Site for vulnerabilities and notifies in case of any problems or discrepancies. It also provides a notification of potential security issues when the plugin has been closed or inactivated. It checks content security by scanning the contents of files, messages, and comments for dangerous URLs and suspicious content.
POLICY FOR CHILDREN
We do not knowingly solicit information from or market to children under the age of 13. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 years of age or under 18 years of age without the parent or guardian of the child’s consent, the personal information that is collected or received will be deleted with no delay. If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 13, please contact us using the contact information provided below.
CONTROLS FOR DO-NOT-TRACK FEATURES
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. If you set the DNT signal on your browser, we will respond to such DNT browser signals.
