I require third party service providers to respect the confidentiality of personal information and all legal requirements under applicable U.S. federal and state privacy legislation, and to agree to contractual requirements that are consistent with this Privacy Policy. Such third parties may be provided with access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use such information other than on my behalf and in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and only for the specific purposes for which I supply it to them.

Security measures are in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the personal information under my control. Personal information is stored in secure environments that are not available to the public (e.g., restricted access premises, locked rooms and filing cabinets).
