The Information the Company collects is securely stored in the Company’s databases, and the Company uses standard, industry-wide, commercially reasonable security practices such as encryption, firewalls and SSL (Secure Socket Layers) for protecting Information. However, as effective as encryption technology is, no security system is impenetrable. The Company, therefore, cannot guarantee the security of the Company’s databases, nor can it guarantee that Information supplied won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to the Company or being transmitted by the Company over the Internet. As such, any Information transmitted by a User to KHNL is done at such User’s risk. The Company recommends that User does not disclose its password to anyone.
