HOW WE PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION

Security – We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect personal information, during transmission and once we receive it. We use administrative, physical, and technical measures designed to protect it from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, disclosure, alteration or destruction.

Encryption – Any data collected by MyEfendi for the purposes of assessments and to provide its Services is protected by encryption. This means we keep data in an unreadable state unless a user or process presents the appropriate key. This simple control method restricts data processing only for authorized use and restricts the amount of time that you are identifiable by your data. Our data is encrypted at rest and in transit. Encryption prevents unauthorized data manipulation; limits data access to authorized users and monitors key usage to ensure that the data cannot be changed without authorization. MyEfendi’s use of encryption together with our access controls provides users to have confidence in their data’s integrity.

Transit – When we need to transfer information out of our firewall, we use encryption methods to protect your data while in transit through the internet. We use encryption and a comprehensive authentication protocol to provide reasonable security. Therefore, while we use the highest standards commercially available to protect your personal information, no method of transmission over the internet or method can ever guarantee its absolute security.

Identity theft – Identity theft and the practice currently known as ‘phishing’ are of great concern to us. Please understand that you also have a responsibility in protecting your information. The only time when a MyEfendi associate may contact you (via electronic communication, postal mail, telephone, etc.) about your credit card or payment information is in connection with a transaction that you have initiated. Otherwise, no one from MyEfendi is permitted to contact anyone to request your credit card information, national identification number, or other identifier or sensitive information in a non-secure or unsolicited email or telephone communication.

DATA ACCURACY

We will exercise reasonable efforts to keep your Personal Information accurate. However, we need your help in making sure that your Personal Information is correct in our systems.
