- SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
The security of your Personal Information is important to us.

This includes, but is not limited to, the use of firewalls and encryption.
Our Site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your Personal Information, including Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) protection for all financial transactions conducted through our Site, our App and our Mobile Site. We also take several steps to protect the physical storage of your personal information in our facilities, including the storage of servers in a secure physical environment, behind a locked cage and an electronic firewall.
It is your responsibility to make sure that your Personal Information is accurate and that your password(s) and account registration information are secure and not shared with third-parties.
Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of Personal Information, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information. To minimize the risk to you, we keep Personal Information no longer than necessary for legitimate business purposes or as required by law.
As part of securing Personal Information stored on our servers, we restrict access to Personal Information to Adore Me Services and Adore Me employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve the Services. These individuals are bound by strict confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.
If a security systems breach occurs and Personal Information is compromised, we may post a notice on our homepage (www.adoremeservices.com) or elsewhere on the Site and take any other appropriate step. If your Personal Information is impacted, we may contact you individually, in compliance with applicable laws.
