Cardholder Data may be used for current payments and stored for future or recurring payments. IDSeal maintains controls consistent with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard and other industry standards to protect Cardholder Data; however, these safeguards may not prevent every unauthorized attempt to access, obtain, or use Cardholder Data.
IDSeal has implemented technological and organizational measures to safeguard your Personal Information from unauthorized or improper access or use during collection and while it is in our possession. Sensitive information (such as government-issued identification numbers, financial information, and Cardholder Data) is subject to heightened security measures. Nonetheless, you should also take measures to safeguard your Personal Information by maintaining the confidentiality of your username and password, logging out of Sites, closing your web browsers when you have concluded your online activities, changing your passwords regularly, and not providing your Personal Information to persons that are unfamiliar to you.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of your Personal Information transmitted to our Sites or through our services. Any transmission of Personal Information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Sites. WE DO NOT WARRANT OR REPRESENT THAT PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU WILL BE PROTECTED AGAINST, LOSS, MISUSE, OR ALTERATION BY THIRD PARTIES.
IDSeal may communicate with you by email or chat, and these communications may at times contain Personal Information. We do not intercept or disclose the contents of email or chat communications in the absence of a warrant, court order, or other lawful demand in connection with an ongoing investigation; however, these communications may not be secure. We recommend that you do not send sensitive information (such as government-issued identification numbers, financial information and Cardholder Data) by email or chat, and we will not ask you to provide such information in this manner.
