In some cases, you may opt out of these data collection efforts, but by doing so, you may lose the ability to get in on some special purchase opportunities, including coupons, discounts, and other special offers.

In adherence with both FTC regulations and HIPAA and FACTA legislation, which protects your right to privacy regarding health or consumer credit issues, we will not collect or use any information which in any way compromises the sanctity of this information, nor pass such information to any third party provider or website without your express written permission.

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY (REGARDING ALL DATA COLLECTION)

Because the prevalence of internet security breaches is so common, we make every effort to ensure that your more private data (such as financial information, social security numbers, personally identifiable information,) and other sensitive data on your account is protected from intruders or security breaches at all times. Access to such data is kept within the company only and is never shared with any third parties. Passwords are protected and we keep security software up-to-date to decrease the chances of intrusion by outside parties.

We also monitor activity within our website and database on a constant basis and do “due diligence” at all times to minimize the risk of compromise to our systems. Also, we employ the use of data backup systems with a remote server in order to ensure your data will still be able to be retrieved in the event of a disaster or temporary shut down.

CHANGES TO OUR POLICIES

Joannavargas.com reserves the right to make changes to our Privacy Policy Statement at any time. We will post any changes to this policy on our main web site within 30 days of the changes, outlining what these changes will be.
