IV. How We Protect Information
Conover Company cares about safeguarding the confidentiality of your Personal Information. We utilize administrative and electronic measures designed to appropriately protect your Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse, and any other unlawful form of processing of any Personal Information in our possession. Our Site is scanned on a regular basis for security holes and known vulnerabilities in order to make your visit to our Site as safe as possible. Your Personal Information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
In addition, all sensitive/credit information you supply is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order, enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your Personal Information. All transactions are processed through a gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.
However, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot guarantee that information about you will not be accessed, viewed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our administrative, physical, and electronic safeguards, subject to requirements under applicable law to ensure or warrant information security. By using our Services, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.
In the event of any breach of security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored Personal Information, we will make any legally-required disclosures to you via email or conspicuous posting on our Site in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, consistent with the legitimate needs of law enforcement or any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system, and any other disclosures that may be required under applicable law. We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.
We also take measures to delete your Personal Information or to store it in a form that does not permit identifying you when this information is no longer necessary for our processing purposes, unless we are required by law to keep this information for a longer period. When determining the retention period of your Personal Information, we consider various criteria, such as the type of products and services requested by or provided to you; the nature and length of our relationship with you; possible re-enrollment with our Services; the impact on the Services we provide to you if we delete some information from or about you; mandatory retention periods provided by law; and the statute of limitations.

C. Processing of Personal Information
Where required by law, we obtain your consent for the processing of certain Personal Information collected by cookies or similar technologies, or used to send you direct marketing communications, or when we carry out other processing activities for which consent may be required.
