This website takes every reasonable precaution to protect our users' information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. For your security, our credit card processing vendor encrypts sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our order forms using secure socket layer technology (SSL). In order for SSL to work, though, you must have a browser that supports SSL technology. While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers, such as Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing'. To learn more about SSL, follow this link: http://www.webopedia.com/DidYouKnow/Internet/2005/ssl.asp.
It should be noted that information you elect to post our the Site, e-mails and other information you send to us, except that which you send us on a secure page, is not encrypted and such transmissions cannot be considered a secure means of transmitting sensitive information. Energized Real Estate will never ask you to submit your financial data, such as your credit card account numbers, via e-mail. IF YOU RECEIVE AN E-MAIL REQUESTING THAT YOU FORWARD INFORMATION OF THIS NATURE BY E-MAIL, PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECTLY AT legal at EnergizedRealEstate.com. DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THE E-MAIL. Internet scams of this nature often referred to as phishing. You should be aware of the limitations of security, authentication, encryption, and privacy measures used in connection with the Internet and that any information you transmit through the Site may be damaged, corrupted, "sniffed" and/or accessed by another person without your permission.
Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment, with access restricted.
Regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet. We cannot ensure or warrant the ultimate security of any information you transmit.
The Site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Energized Real Estate may not be responsible for content or the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and recommend that they read the privacy statements of each and every website they visit. This Policy applies solely to information collected by this Site.
