How We Protect Personal Information

While FortyNorth is committed to protecting your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, we cannot fully eliminate all security risks. However, your submission of any personally identifiable information to FortyNorth is purely voluntary and, therefore, should not be of a particularly sensitive nature. As such, we employ our standard security measures with respect to this information and do not utilize special encryption methods at this time. In addition, please note that, although FortyNorth maintains safeguards to protect Personal Information, no Internet system can be 100% secure and, therefore, we cannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.
