12. Security

 

My hosting service, Wix, has implemented security measures designed to protect the Personal Information you share with me, including physical, electronic and procedural measures. Among other things, I offer HTTPS secure access to most areas on my Services; the transmission of sensitive payment information (such as a credit card number) through my designated purchase forms is protected by an industry standard SSL/TLS encrypted connection; and I regularly maintain a PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) certification. They also regularly monitor my systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and regularly seek new ways and Third Party Services for further enhancing the security of my Services and protection of my Visitors’ and Users’ privacy.

 

Regardless of the measures and efforts taken by myself and Wix, I cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of your Personal Information, or any other information you upload, publish or otherwise share with me or anyone else. I encourage you to set strong passwords for your User Account, and avoid providing me or anyone with any sensitive Personal Information of which you believe its disclosure could cause you substantial or irreparable harm.

Furthermore, because certain areas on my Services may less secure than others, or if you browse to a non-SSL page), and since e-mail and instant messaging are not recognized as secure forms of communications, I request and encourage you not to share any Personal Information on any of these areas or via any of these methods.

 

If you have any questions regarding the security of my Services, you are welcome to contact me at ron@roaming-kiwi.com.

 

13. Third-Party Websites

 

My Services may contain links to other websites or services. I am not responsible for such websites’ or services’ privacy practices. We encourage you to be aware when you leave my Services and to read the privacy statements of each and every website and service you visit before providing your Personal Information. This Privacy Policy does not apply to such linked third party websites and services.

 

 

14. Public forums and user content

 

My Services may offer publicly accessible blogs, communities and support forums. Please be aware that any Personal Information you provide in any such areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your Personal Information from my blogs, communities or forums, feel free to contact me at: ron@roaming-kiwi.com. In some cases, I may not be able to remove your Personal Information from such areas. For example, if you use a third party application to post a comment (e.g., the Facebook social plugin application) while logged in to your related profile with such third party, you must login into such application or contact its provider if you want to remove the Personal Information you posted on that platform. 

 

In any event, I advise against posting any Personal Information (via any means) you don’t wish to publicize.

 

If you upload any user content to your User Account or post it on the Website and provide it in any other way as part of the use of any Service, you do so at your own risk.

There are adequate security measures in place to protect your Personal Information.  However, I cannot control the actions of other Users or members of the public who may access your User Content, and are not responsible for the circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures you or I may have used on the Website (including, for instance, password-protected areas of the Website). You understand and acknowledge that, even after its removal by you or me, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if any third parties have copied or stored such User Content. To clarify, I advise against uploading or posting any information you do not wish to be public.
