HOW GENESIS DISTRIBUTION PROTECTS USER INFORMATION
Genesis Distribution adopts data collection, storage, and processing practices and security measures to help protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of Users’ PII and data stored on the Website. Sensitive and private data exchanged directly between the Website and its Users happens over an SSL- secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures. Genesis Distribution does not store any personal information locally but rather utilizes a third-party data storage services provider with firewalls and in which all customer information is encrypted. Genesis Distribution will continually review and update its data security program as technology evolves. The importance of security for all PII associated with our users is of utmost concern to Genesis Distribution. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. As a result, Genesis Distribution makes no representation or warranty as to the security of any information Users transmit to Genesis Distribution or the potential loss, misuse or alteration of the PII that Genesis Distribution collects on its Website. Genesis Distribution cannot be responsible for the actions of any third parties who might receive Users’ PII.
“DO NOT TRACK” POLICY.
Some web browsers have “Do Not Track” or similar features that allow you to tell each website you visit that you do not want User activities on that website tracked. At present, the Website does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals and consequently, the Website will continue to collect non-personal information about Users even if the browser’s “Do Not Track” feature is activated.
In the event Genesis Distribution goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, User PII will likely be among the assets transferred. Users will be notified via email of any such change in ownership or control of User PII.
Genesis Distribution reserves the right to disclose User PII as required by law and when Genesis Distribution believes that disclosure is necessary to protect its rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on Genesis Distribution, its subsidiaries, affiliates, employees or agents
