All personal information you provide to us is stored on secure servers or hard copy form, both onsite at a Climbing Anchors retail store or with our trusted service provider. Any trusted service provider must observe and meet our information security requirements to minimise the risk of unauthorised access to, and loss, misuse or unapproved alteration of, personal information.
We have in place reasonable security arrangements to ensure that your personal information is adequately protected and secured and to prevent any misuse, interference, loss, unauthorised access or disclosure of your personal information. Security measures include allocating employee specific, multifactor protected accounts for all third-party systems used to manage customer information; reasonable IT security measures such as data encryption, firewalls and antivirus controls; physical measures such as the anonymisation of paper records. We will take reasonable steps to destroy or de-identify any personal information we hold as soon as we no longer need to hold it (as permitted by law).
We will not be responsible for any unauthorised use of personal information by third parties which is attributable to factors beyond our control. We are not responsible for the online privacy practices of third parties.
Further, given that no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed as completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of any (personal or other) information you transmit to us, and as such we will not be liable for any breach of security or unintended loss or disclosure of information.
