SECURITY MEASURES TO PROTECT INFORMATION; DISCLAIMER
XAP uses industry standard physical, electronic, and procedural security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction of PII and Automatically-Collected Information we collect and store. For example, Number2.com causes the PII you input to be encrypted when in route between your browser and the Number2.com server and when in route between the Number2.com server and some other browser or server. This practice helps prevent unauthorized third parties from intercepting and gaining access to your PII during transmission over the Internet. Number2.com uses 128-bit, Secure Socket Layer encryption supported by both Netscape's and Microsoft's browsers.
PII residing on the Number2.com server is password protected, and account access is provided only to the account holder who created the password, anyone to whom that account holder entrusted the password, a coach authorized by the account holder, and those employees of XAP who require such access to administer and maintain the Number2.com system or to provide requested customer support to users of Number2.com. Each XAP employee who has access to the PII residing on the Number2.com server has agreed in writing to respect the privacy of all such PII. XAP trains employees to protect customer information and only authorize access for employees who XAP believes have a business need for that information. XAP holds employees accountable to a Code of Conduct and Ethics to protect user information.
The safety and security of your PII also depends on you. You should not send us sensitive PII via email, as this is not secure. You are also responsible for keeping your account username and password confidential. Please notify us if you become aware that your PII is lost, stolen, or used without permission; we may disable access to your account in order to prevent an unauthorized third party from accessing your account.
While we take industry-standard security measures to protect the privacy of your PII, we cannot guarantee that your PII will never be compromised. No Internet or wireless network transmission is ever 100% secure, and no security system can prevent all security breaches. We do not and cannot guarantee that there will be no unintended disclosures of your PII or that unauthorized third parties will not defeat our security measures or use nonpublic information for improper purposes.
We use third-party services provided by Google Analytics to track and analyze your Number2.com activity. In order to gather this Automatically-Collected Information, we use a Google Analytics cookie on Number2.com. If you don't want your Automatically-Collected Information used by Google Analytics, Google recommends installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Ad-on, located here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/
