APS Security Policy
The security of your personal information is important to us. We utilize physical, electronic and procedural security measures to protect against loss, misuse, and alteration of information under our control. We offer industry–standard practices and security measures to safeguard and secure the personal information we collect. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
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 APS accounts and systems from unauthorized access.
When you register for APS Services, APS requires a password from you for your privacy and security. APS transmits information such as your Registration Information or Account Credentials securely.
Our servers are in a secure facility. Access requires multiple levels of authentication. Security personnel monitor the system 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
We employ controls to limit access to our databases to those employees or service providers with a business need to access them. We encrypt your account password and PIN so that your password cannot be recovered, even by us. All backup drives and tapes are also encrypted.
We use our reasonable best efforts to protect user information, however no method of transmission or method of data storage is 100% secure. Despite our commercially reasonable efforts, we cannot assure that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner inconsistent with this policy.
Your use of the APS Services acknowledges that APS is not liable or responsible for any intercepted information and you hereby release APS from any and all claims arising out of or related to an unauthorized or inadvertent breach of data or violation of privacy policies.
