How We Protect Confidentiality and Security of Information

To prevent unauthorized access and ensure the protection, confidentiality, security and correct use of data submitted to the love2lose.com by active participants/users, we have implemented reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and data management procedures to protect and security and confidentiality of the information we collect.

(i) Secure Data Transmission: Internet Browser to Server
All Personal Information submitted using online forms is encrypted during transmission to our database by technology called secure sockets layer (SSL) certificates. This is the same technology used by financial institutions to ensure your banking information, for example, is not hacked/stolen or visible to unauthorized third parties as that information is being transmitted to and from your browser.

You can immediately tell that transactions are happening securely by the green address bar on your browser as you visit and submit forms on love2lose.com

You should be aware that no data transmission over the Internet is completely secure, and no system of physical or electronic security 100% secure or error-free at all times. Therefore we.com cannot guarantee the security of Personal Information in our possession or the security of love2lose.com servers or databases.

When you use love2lose.com, you agree to assume all risk in connection with the Personal Information sent to or collected by us. In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your Personal Information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you. If notification is appropriate, we may notify you by e-mail, messaging to your device, or other means.

(ii) Secure Website Hosting
To protect the security of love2lose.com and the information we store, transmit and process and prevent unauthorized access, and maintain data accuracy and ensure the appropriate use of Personal Information we collect, we use a wide range of technical, physical and administrative safeguards, including firewalls, system alerts and other security technologies.

When you register for a premium membership on love2lose.com, we use third-party service providers to manage credit card and payment processing. Our service providers are not permitted to store, retain, or use billing Information except for the sole purpose of credit card and payment processing on our behalf. When you enter payment information to be processed by our third-party service providers, we encrypt the transmission of that information using transport layer security (TLS) technology and do not store it on our systems.

Your Personal Information will be retained as long as your account is active or needed to provide you with services, and to comply with legislation, respond to inquiries, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.

Consent to Transfer

We store Personal Information in the United States where our web servers are located. By providing Personal Information to love2lose.com, you consent to such collection and storage.

We access and use Personal Information in Canada. Unless we are required by law or regulation to keep such information in Canada, Personal Information may also be accessed, or used outside of Canada. For example, when we engage a service provider outside of Canada, Personal Information may be stored, accessed or used in any country where the service provider is located, or from which it provides services. Where Personal Information is located outside of Canada, it is subject to the laws of that jurisdiction.

Your Personal Information will be retained as long as your account is active or needed to provide you with services, and to comply with legislation, respond to inquiries, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
