Information Sharing and Disclosure

We may be required to disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas or when your actions violate Company’s Terms of Use.

We will not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with nonaffiliated parties except as specified in this Privacy Policy to provide products or services you have requested or when We have your permission.  It may be necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Company's Terms of Use, as specified in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise required by law.

Third Parties

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information We collect from you.

Payment

If you make a purchase on Website, We use a third party payment processor such as Stripe or Paypal. Payments are encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our site and related courses and its service providers.

Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. Your Company account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by signing off once you have finished using a shared computer.  When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) for registration, We encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and store it with a AES-256 encryption. We follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, We cannot guarantee absolute security of your personal information.  If you have any questions about security on Website, you can email Company at mark@archambaultconsulting.com.
