In addition, all employees who will have access to any personal information of others are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
