Security

SteriLux Systems takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive

information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever

we collect sensitive information (e.g. credit card information), that information is encrypted

and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the

address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the webpage.

 

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect

your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job

(for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable

information. The computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information

are kept in a secure environment. This is all done to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized

access, disclosure or modification of the user’s personal information under our control.

GDPR Disclosure:

If you answered “yes” to the question Does your website comply with the General Data Protection Regulation

(“GDPR”)? then the Privacy Policy above includes language that is meant to account for such compliance.

Nevertheless, in order to be fully compliant with GDPR regulations your company must fulfill other requirements

such as: (i) doing an assessment of data processing activities to improve security; (ii) have a data processing

agreement with any third party vendors; (iii) appoint a data protection officer for the company to monitor GDPR

compliance; (iv) designate a representative based in the EU under certain circumstances; and (v) have a protocol

in place to handle a potential data breach. For more details on how to make sure your company is fully compliant

with GDPR, please visit the official website at https://gdpr.eu. FormSwift and its subsidiaries are in no way

responsible for determining whether or not your company is in fact compliant with GDPR and takes no

responsibility for the use you make of this Privacy Policy or for any potential liability your company may face in

relation to any GDPR compliance issues.

 

COPPA Compliance Disclosure:

This Privacy Policy presumes that your website is not directed at children under the age of 13 and does not

knowingly collect personal identifiable information from them or allow others to do the same through your site. If

this is not true for your website or online service and you do collect such information (or allow others to do so),

please be aware that you must be compliant with all COPPA regulations and guidelines in order to avoid

violations which could lead to law enforcement actions, including civil penalties.

In order to be fully compliant with COPPA your website or online service must fulfill other requirements such as:

(i) posting a privacy policy which describes not only your practices, but also the practices of any others collecting

personal information on your site or service — for example, plug-ins or ad networks; (ii) include a prominent link

to your privacy policy anywhere you collect personal information from children; (iii) include a description of

parental rights (e.g. that you won’t require a child to disclose more information than is reasonably necessary, that

they can review their child’s personal information, direct you to delete it, and refuse to allow any further

collection or use of the child’s information, and the procedures to exercise their rights); (iv) give parents “direct

notice” of your information practices before collecting information from their children; and (v) obtain the parents’

“verifiable consent” before collecting, using or disclosing personal information from a child. For more

information on the definition of these terms and how to make sure your website or online service is fully

compliant with COPPA please visit https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/childrens-onlineprivacy-
