You can cancel your participation in any of these email lists at any time by clicking on the opt-out link or other unsubscribe option that is included in the respective email. We only send emails to people who have authorized us to contact them, either directly, or through a third party. We do not send unsolicited commercial emails, because we hate spam as much as you do. By submitting your email address, you also agree to allow us to use your email address for customer audience targeting on sites like Facebook, where we display custom advertising to specific people who have opted-in to receive communications from us. Email addresses submitted only through the order processing page will be used for the sole purpose of sending you information and updates pertaining to your order. If, however, you have provided the same email to us through another method, we may use it for any of the purposes stated in this Policy. Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email.

9. How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Data? We keep your Personal Data only so long as we need it to provide the Service to you and fulfill the purposes described in this policy. This is also the case for anyone that we share your Personal Data with and who carries out services on our behalf. When we no longer need to use your Personal Data, and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can’t identify you.

10. How Do We Protect Your Personal Data? We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your Personal Data when you place an order or enter, submit, or access your Personal Data. We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers’ database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems and are required to keep the information confidential. After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) is never kept on file. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the absolute security of any information you transmit to Safeguard Equipment or guarantee that your information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by a breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

11. Could my Personal Data be transferred to other countries? Safeguard Equipment is incorporated in the United States. Personal Data collected via our website, through direct interactions with you, or from the use of our help services may be transferred from time to time to our offices or personnel, or third parties, located throughout the world. It may be viewed and hosted anywhere in the world, including in countries that may not have laws of general applicability regulating the use and transfer of such data. To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, by using any of the above, you voluntarily consent to the trans-border transfer and hosting of such Personal Data.

12. Is Personal Data that is collected through the Service secure? We take precautions to protect the security of your Personal Data. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard, prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use your Personal Data. However, neither people nor security systems are foolproof, including encryption systems. In addition, people can commit intentional crimes, make mistakes, or fail to follow policies. Therefore, while we use reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If applicable law imposes any non-disclaimable duty to protect your Personal Data, you agree that intentional misconduct will be the standard used to measure our compliance with that duty.

13. How Long is my Personal Data Retained? We will retain your Personal Data for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law, for legal, tax, or regulatory reasons, or other legitimate and lawful business purposes.

14. Can I update or correct my Personal Data? Customers have the right to request the restriction of certain uses and disclosures of Personal Data as follows. You can contact us in order to (1) update or correct your Personal Data, (2) change your preferences with respect to communications and other information you receive from us, or (3) delete the Personal Data maintained about you on our systems (subject to the following paragraph), by canceling your account. Such updates, corrections, changes, and deletions will have no effect on other information that we maintain or Personal Data that we have provided to third parties in accordance with this Privacy Policy prior to such update, correction, change, or deletion. To protect your privacy and security, we may take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you profile access or making corrections. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information at all times. You should be aware that it may not be technologically possible to remove each and every record of the Personal Data you have provided to us from our system. The need to back up our systems to protect Personal Data from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your Personal Data may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. Promptly after receiving your request, all Personal Data stored in databases we actively use, and other readily searchable media will be updated, corrected, changed, or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as and to the extent reasonably and technically practicable. If you are an end-user and wish to update, delete, or receive any Personal Data we have about you, you may do so by contacting the organization of which you are a customer.

15. Sale of Business We reserve the right to transfer Personal Data to a third party in the event of a sale, merger, or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of Safeguard Equipment or any of its Corporate Affiliates (as defined herein), or that portion of Safeguard Equipment or any of its Corporate Affiliates to which the Service relates, or in the event that we discontinue our business or file a petition or have filed against us a petition in bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding, provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
