We use this information to contact the Member about the services available on the Site, and to verify the identity of the Designated User. The Company also is required to provide information about its business operations. We use this information to tailor the Member's use of the Site and to authenticate Designated Users' identities.

We may provide or sell aggregated demographic information to other companies. Aggregated information means information that is a collection of data about many users, and which typically has no data specific to any one user. We also work with other companies, such as those which host our site, and those companies may therefore have access to some data on our servers.

SSL encodes information that is being sent over the Internet between your computer and EffOne, helping to ensure that the information remains confidential during transit. The use of SSL requires that you have an SSL-compatible browser.
We attempt to keep our computers on a segregated network through firewall technology and use anti-virus software, and restrict access to sensitive areas on our computers. However, there is no guarantee that information would be completely secure or that the integrity of the servers could be maintained at all times.
Every one of our users should install and use, and keep up to date, software that screens for viruses and other harmful files that could damage data on systems operated or used by those users.
