Security of Personal Information
SolarTown takes physical, electronic, and procedural measures to protect personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure while it is under our control. Even so, security breaches and mistakes can and do happen and we do not guarantee the security of personal information. SolarTown employs Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt during transmission the credit card and other personal information you input when placing an order on our site. SSL is a commonly employed method of encrypted communication used on the Internet. Except for those transmissions, you should assume the site is not encrypted and that we do not encrypt any transmissions between you and us or with our business partners. Email communications and online comments and other user content are not encrypted, so you should not include sensitive personal information in them. “Phishing,” imposters, and fake websites are a fact of modern life, and it is your responsibility to take steps to protect yourself.
What Can You Do To Protect Personal Information
At any time, if you believe personal information about you within our control has been accessed by unauthorized persons, please contact us immediately.
An important part of ensuring the security of personal information is your own effort to protect it against unauthorized access or use. For instance, when you create an account on our site, you will choose a password. You should protect the security of your password to keep the other personal information you provide secured. Do not give your password to anyone else under any circumstances, and change your password periodically to protect the security of your account.
