4. Safeguarding data
The security of your data is important to us, and 3B Investments has made a significant effort to protect the safekeeping and confidentiality of your data. When using external service providers, we require that they adhere to the same standards as 3B Investments. Personal data may be transferred or stored at a location outside of your country of residence. Regardless of where personal data is transmitted or stored, we take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that confidential information is kept secure.
The internet is not a secure form of communication, and sending and receiving data over the internet carries risks, including the risk of access and interference by unauthorised third parties. Data passing over the internet may be transmitted internationally (even when the sender and recipient are in the same country) via countries with weaker privacy and data protection laws than your country of residence. We do not accept responsibility or liability for your personal data’s confidentiality, security, or integrity in connection with its transmission over the internet.
However, we take all reasonable care in collecting, storing, processing, and disclosing your data. We have implemented internal security procedures to minimise the risk that unauthorised parties will access the data. Because of these security procedures, we may ask for proof of identity before we disclose any personal data about you.
To help protect your data and reduce the risk of it being intercepted by unauthorised third parties, our secure servers use industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) technology when you submit data to us through our website. This security is documented by the usage of the secure “HTTPS” protocol and the padlock on the URL bar.
You can also help to protect your data by following the guidelines below:
• choose a password that you will remember, but that would be hard for someone to guess. Ideally, it should include special characters (such as “?” or “#”, for example) and numbers. We recommend that you change it regularly and if you need to write it down, always keep it in a safe place.
• make sure that no one can see the details you are entering when you log in.
• remember to close your browser each time you log off and end your session and, if possible, clear any history of the websites you have visited and that your browser may have
• saved or “cached”; and never disclose your account details
• to anyone.
• ensure that the software you use has installed the latest security upgrades and that your software protection is up to date.
Unfortunately, the transmission of data via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to guard your data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your data, we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorised access.
