Sandwire has created this privacy statement ("Statement") in order to demonstrate our commitment to customer privacy. Privacy on Sandwire' website is of great importance to us. Because we gather important information from our visitors and customers, we have established this Statement as a means to communicate our information gathering and dissemination practices. We reserve the right to change this Statement and will provide notification of the change at least thirty (30) business days prior to the change taking effect.
1. Customer Data:
When you interact with the Site we strive to make that experience easy and meaningful. When you come to our Site, our web server sends a cookie to your computer. Cookies are files that web browsers place on a computer's hard drive and are used to tell us whether customers and visitors have visited the Site previously. Standing alone, cookies do not identify you personally. They merely recognize your browser. Unless you choose to identify yourself to Sandwire you remain anonymous to Sandwire. Cookies come in two flavors: session and persistent based. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you've closed your browser or turned off your computer. They include such information as a unique identifier for your browser. Sandwire uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the system to uniquely identify you while you are logged in. This information allows Sandwire to process your online transactions and requests. Session cookies help us make sure you are who you say you are after you've logged in and are required in order to use Sandwire Mail. Sandwire uses persistent cookies that only Sandwire can read and use, to identify the fact that you are a Sandwire customer or prior Sandwire website visitor. We are especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. For example, we do not store account numbers or passwords in persistent cookies. Users who disable their web browsers' ability to accept cookies will be able to browse our Site but will not be able to successfully use our services.
3. Third-Party Sites:
The Site contains links to other websites. Sandwire is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other websites. Customers and visitors will need to check the policy statement of these other websites to understand their policies. Customers and visitors who access a linked site may be disclosing their private information. It is the responsibility of the user to keep such information private and confidential.
Our Site has security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the Data under our control. We store the information in a database in a secure environment. When our Site is accessed using Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 5.0 or higher, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects information using both server authentication and data encryption to help ensure that Data is safe, secure, and available only to you. Sandwire also implements an advanced security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications, and hosts the Site in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. Finally, Sandwire provides unique user names and passwords that must be entered each time a customer logs on. These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of Data. Sandwire takes care to reinforce the importance of our website visitor's security and privacy among our employees. The bottom line is that because our business involves hosting application accounts, data security is paramount. We're constantly re-evaluating and deploying new technologies to enhance our security.
