SECURITY INFORMATION

Data Transmission. No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Thus, Werbie cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us. You use the Service at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure security on our systems. However, this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software.  The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Service, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Security Breach. If Werbie learns of a security system’s breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Service or providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Service. Also, Werbie may post a notice on the Website or the App if a security breach occurs. If this happens, you will need a web browser or mobile device enabling you to view the Service. Werbie may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you must notify us.  Please also report  any security violations or concerns to us by emailing us.

Covered Entities with whom we interact must follow state and federal laws protecting the privacy and security of PHI received from us; their activities are not subject to this policy.  If you have questions about how a Covered Entity uses and discloses your PHI you should ask for a copy of their Notice of Privacy Practices.
