SECURITY AND PROTECTING YOUR PRIVACY
The security of your personal information is extremely important to us, and we take steps to protect the security and privacy of personal information you share with us. This includes using a technology called secure sockets layer (ssl), which encrypts (or encodes) sensitive information before it is sent over the internet. In general, though, information transmitted through the internet may not be perfectly secure, and Ingredients Matter cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. We encourage you to protect the security of your account, and recommend the following (although this is not a comprehensive list of the actions you should take to secure your computer, other devices, and Ingredients Matter account):
- Protect your computer and mobile devices with passwords or other security measures, such as fingerprint or facial identification security, and do not share passwords with others, including your Ingredients Matter password.
- Review your Ingredients Matter account and contact us immediately if you suspect that there has been unauthorized use of your account, or if you don’t recognize information or activity on your account.
- Maintain antivirus software on your devices to help prevent malware and viruses, and promptly install any available security updates.
- Make sure you log out of your account, particularly when using any public devices.
- Use complex passwords and do not use the same password for multiple websites.
We will never request your credit card information or password in an email. If you receive such a request, please contact us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
