How Sector & Segment keeps your information secure

Sector & Segment has implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operational security in order to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. All your information is stored on our secure servers and we will protect your information in line with legal requirements.

Despite these precautions, however, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our Site or that unauthorised persons will not obtain access to your personally identifiable information.

Our Site may from time to time contain links to other websites. Please check the privacy policies on those sites before you submit your information to those sites. We do not accept any responsibility or liability for those sites or their privacy policies.
You should keep in mind that whenever you publicly disclose information about yourself online — for example, via message boards or chat rooms — that information could be collected and used by people whom you do not know. In addition, certain message boards and similar user forums may display IP addresses along with the message poster’s name and message. Sector & Segment bears no responsibility for any action or policies of any third parties who collect any information users may disclose on the message boards, chat areas or other user forums, if any, on the Site.
