Our practices for communication systems, software, and physical and digital databases are designed to help us maintain the authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality of said Information. It is important to mention that, regardless of us using all the necessary means to ensure information security when it is transmitted through a third party (service providers), we cannot guarantee information security during said transmissions, by any means.
