Mobile Applications

Our mobile applications do not utilize third party web analytical tools and are designed only to install shortcuts onto mobile devices. They are not designed to collect personal information.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

Cookies, web beacons, and/or similar devices were originally designed to help a website distinguish a user's browser from a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site or to track the user's activities.

A cookie is a small string of text that a website can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address. Currently, we use cookies to enhance the user's visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user's ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited or keep track of selections.

A web beacon is a small gif image that is embedded in an HTML page or email used to track when the page or email has been viewed. A similar device may be used by which a product or service may send data to a server when a set of user-initiated events occur such as when a selection is made. This device is similar to a cookie in that it tracks your visit and the data can only be read by the server that receives the data. It is different than a cookie in that it is not browser-based, may not function as an identification card, and does not store any data on your computer.

If you wish to not have the information these technologies collect used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out. The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether.

If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website or via HTML-formatted emails, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of the Certainsafe and or Secure Cloud Systems, INC.'s website if you do so. In particular, you may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website, though you do not need to turn on cookies to use or navigate through many parts of our website.

Your Ability to Access or Change Your Information

If you are a registered user or have been named as a "Contact" for a company (including but not limited to companies acting as our end users or partners), you can review your personal information and make change requests by accessing "My Account". While you are named as the "Contact" for a particular company, we will direct many of the correspondences for that company to you. If you do not wish to receive further business correspondence for and on behalf of your company, you may change the "Contact" to another individual upon consultation with your company. In the alternative, if you do not wish to receive further direct marketing materials, you may "unsubscribe" the relevant marketing materials. If you are no longer the "Contact" for a particular company, we may retain in our files some personal information to prevent fraud, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, enforce our Legal Notice and Terms of Use, respect your opt-out preferences, and comply with legal requirements as permitted by law.

Personal Information Security

We protect your account information for your privacy. We safeguard the personal information you send us and implement reasonable physical, technical, and organizational measures to prevent unauthorized access, unlawful processing, and unauthorized or accidental loss, destruction, or damage to your personal information. We use industry-standard SSL-encryption to enhance the security of sensitive data transmissions in most of our websites. While we strive to protect your personal information, we need your co-operation to ensure the security of the information you transmit to us. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal information while using the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a passphrase instead of password with at least 8 characters in combination of letters and numbers and try to adhere to Secure Cloud Systems password complexity requirements. Make sure you use a secure internet browser, follow the vendor suggestions and apply updates when required.

Forums and Blogs

Some of our websites allow our users to submit content via discussion forums, blogs, and other means.
