How We Secure Your Information

Securing your information is a company priority. We use reasonable security measures to help protect the confidentiality of personal information.

Online Protections

We use a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). If your browser is capable of SSL (and most are), your account information will be protected during transport across the Internet. When you enter a secure portion of a website, which is any page containing any of your account information, an image of a closed lock or a solid key should appear in the bottom bar of your browser window or at the front of the url address in the address bar at the top of the window. If you click on this image, a small pop-up window displaying website security information will appear. This display indicates that your personal information is transmitted in encrypted form to a our web host server, not to some unknown or unauthorized server.

Hard Copy and Electronic Storage Protections

Personal information that is maintained in our office is subject to physical, administrative, and technical controls as well. Hard copies of sensitive personal information are maintained in locked locations or cabinets with similar restrictions for electronic storage. When disposed of, the information is shredded, destroyed, erased, or otherwise sought to be made unreadable.

Financial Products and Services

We protect payment card information we collect during transactions. We comply with industry standards that require safeguards for handling and securing customer information. These include using secure networks; encryption or other protection of cardholder data.

Privacy of Children Online

We are committed to protecting children's online privacy. Our website is a general audience website not geared towards children. In order to protect the privacy of children, Fiddly Bits websites do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without prior parental consent. Please contact us via the Contact Us section of this policy if you believe we may have collected information from your child and we will work to delete it.
