The Website may contain links to third party websites, whose information practices may be different than Switch2Local’s. Visitors should consult such third-party sites’ privacy notices as Switch2Local does not have any control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties. Switch2Local does not make any representations or warranties as to the security of any information (including, without limitation, credit card and other personal information) you might be requested to give any third party.
These links are provided solely as a convenience to you and not as an endorsement by Switch2Local of the contents on such third-party websites. Switch2Local cannot ensure that you will be satisfied with any products or services that you purchase from a third-party site that links to or from the Website, since these sites are owned and operated by independent retailers. Switch2Local is not responsible for the content of linked third-party sites and does not make any representations regarding the content or accuracy of materials on such third-party sites. Switch2Local has not taken any steps to confirm the accuracy or reliability of any of the information contained in such third-party sites. If you decide to access linked third-party sites, you do so at your own risk. Switch2Local strongly encourages you to make whatever investigation you feel necessary or appropriate before proceeding with any online or off-line transaction with any of these third parties.
The importance of security for all personally-identifiable information associated with visitors to the Website—as well as Switch2Local customer information, such as cell phone numbers, texts, messages, credit card information, and addresses, and other account data—is of utmost concern to Switch2Local, and we have implemented, and periodically review, certain physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help prevent unauthorized access and maintain data security. Your payment and personal information is always safe. Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address. Unfortunately, due to the open nature of Internet communications, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be secure, and thus we cannot guarantee that communications between you and Switch2Local will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. Visitors of the Website and Switch2Local customers use the Website at their own risk.
We may update this privacy statement to reflect changes to our information practices. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the e-mail address specified in your account) or by means of a notice on this Site prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to periodically review this page for the latest information on our privacy practices.
