The security and confidentiality of your information is extremely important to us. We have implemented technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect your information from unauthorized access and improper use. Quester® makes access to your Personal Information subject to certain security measures, including technological controls such as “firewalls,” in accordance with industry standards. When the use of a Quester® web page involves the transmission of Personal Information or confidential information of Quester®, Quester® uses Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) technology to establish a secure connection between your computer and Quester®. SSL allows the transmission of encrypted information from your computer to Quester® and back again, and is currently the industry standard for Internet platform security. From time to time, we review our security procedures in order to consider appropriate new technology and methods.
Please be aware though that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so while Quester® strives to protect your Personal Information, Quester® cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you voluntarily give to Quester®.
Quester® reserves the right to monitor all network traffic to this Website to identify and/or block unauthorized attempts or intrusions to upload or change information or cause damage to this Website in any manner. Anyone using this Website expressly consents to such monitoring.
