6. Security

(1) The security of your Personal Information is important to ClearRisk Inc. ClearRisk Inc. takes technical, contractual, administrative and physical security steps to protect Personal Information that you provide to us. Clear Risk Inc. takes various security measures, including the use of secured networks, to protect against unauthorized access to, or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of, your Personal Information. These measures also include internal reviews of ClearRisk Inc.’s data collection, storage and processing practices. ClearRisk Inc. instructs its employees with access to your Personal Information that it is to be used only in adherence with the principles set forth in this Website Privacy and Security Policy and the laws applicable to each specific business.

(2) You can help protect the security of your Personal Information as well. For instance, never give out your password, since this is what is used to access your account or registration information. Also, remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you finish using the ClearRisk Inc. website or surfing the Web, so that other people using the same computer will not have access to your information. You must notify ClearRisk Inc. immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or account, or of any other breach of security. ClearRisk Inc. is not liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your password or account information.

ClearRisk Inc. requires that you identify yourself and the information requested to be accessed, corrected or removed before processing your request. ClearRisk Inc. may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive or systematic, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, or that would be extremely impractical to satisfy (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes), or for which access is not otherwise required.
