- We may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your inquiries or to send you emails from time to time.

You should be aware that information which you voluntarily include and transmit online in a publicly assessable forum, chat room or otherwise online may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions. We are unable to control such uses of your information, and by using such services you assume the risk that the information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties for any number of purposes.

7. Your Data is Secure
Your security is one of our top priorities and is taken very seriously. We utilize industry-standard encryption via an SSL certification for storage of your information and have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and CNF Exchange or information stored on the Service or our servers will be free from unauthorized access by third parties, such as hackers, and your use of the Service demonstrates your assumption of this risk. That said, we have implmented the following security measures to ensure your data is protected:
- We use a combination of firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures, among others, to maintain the security of your online session and to protect CNF Exchange accounts and systems from unauthorized access.
- CNF Exchange is managed from a dedicated server using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. Utilizing this technology provides a private and secure transmission of files over the internet. Information exchanged with an address beginning with ‘https' is encrypted using SSL before transmission. You can verify CNF Exchange's use of the SSL when you see the URL starting with the letters ‘https'. CNF Exchange is built with better than most banking security, utilizing 256-bit encryption. Most other financial organizations utilize only 128-bit encryption.
- CNF Exchange can detect and prevent unauthorized behaviors and is monitored daily for unauthorized activities. CNF Exchange is also audited in regular intervals by antivirus software and files are backed up in case of unforeseen events.
- Our databases are protected from general employee access both physically and logically. Only those personnel who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are authorized to have access to your personally identifiable information.
- CNF Exchange maintains policies and procedures that provide for the proper physical security of workspaces and records.
- All information is stored in an encrypted database, and all backup is encrypted with different keys. Furthermore, physical access controls are enforced at all times.
