How we secure your personal information once we have it

We store and process your information on our services located in the United States. It is your responsibility to make sure that your personal information is accurate and that your password(s) and Account registration information are secure and not shared with third parties. 

SimpleConsign uses a secure server and security protocol to safeguard any information you provide. The secure server implements the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol to interact with you when you provide personal information. This technology sends your data through an encrypted tunnel via 256-bit encryption so a third party cannot read the information while in transit. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our Site. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site.

We also use JavaScript, so please enable JavaScript in your browser. We only utilize JavaScript to create more dynamic and user-friendly pages.

Email messages are not secure. Our security software does not encrypt email messages. Unencrypted email messages traveling through the Internet are potentially subject to viewing, alteration and copying by others.

Leaving our site though partner links or advertisement

This Privacy Policy only applies to personal information we collect from you related to your use of the Site and Services.  If you choose to follow third-party links on the Site to other sites, any banners or third-party advertisements, the Privacy Policy from this Site is no longer in force, and we strongly recommend you read the terms of use of the website where you land. In addition, Users should know that any banners or third-party advertisements will take them away from the originating Site.

How you correct or update personal information

You control the personal data you share with us.  Users can update or correct any personal information given to us. Some of the information you can change by logging into your Account and changing the settings.  Users can ask to see, update or amend any other personal information we have for you by contacting us.

Your privacy is important to us, so we will ask that you provide sufficient information to verify your identity before we respond to your requests.  In some situations, we may refuse to act or impose limitations on your right if, for instance, it is likely to adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others, prejudice the execution or enforcement of the law, or interfere with pending or future litigation.  

If you delete your Submitted Content from the Site, copies of your Submitted Content may still be used by us in anonymized and aggregate form, remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Users. Proper access and use of information provided on the Site, including Submitted Content, is governed by our Terms of Use.
