We may anonymize the information we collect about you by removing or "hashing" any data fields (such as name, address and telephone number), that identify you or that can be used to identify you personally. We use industry best practices and state-of-the-art techniques to anonymize and aggregate data.

This could lead to your personally identifiable information being in the hands of someone else who may use it fraudulently or make public, information that you would prefer to keep private.
The security of your personally identifiable information is important to us. We utilize robust security measures to protect customer data from unauthorized access.

Nevertheless, we remind you that no security measure is perfect and you should take steps to protect your passwords and personally identifiable information. SecureDocs is not liable for loss of passwords by customers. If you believe your password has been compromised, we recommend that you immediately change your password.
We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.
In the event SecureDocs goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your personally identifiable information will likely be among the assets transferred.
