Accuracy, Retention and Security
CKM endeavours to ensure that any Personal Information provided by Customers and in its possession is accurate, current and complete as necessary for the purposes for which CKM uses that information.
CKM maintains reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, disclosure, misuse, alteration or destruction. CKM's networking systems include an industry standard firewall and systems that are both physically and logically protected (via secured locations and passwords). Customer information will be regularly backed-up and stored in a secure location. Other data will be kept on an industry standard computer database fully protected behind a firewall.
Subject to any applicable legal requirements, CKM retains Personal Information about customers as long as CKM believes it is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. Personal Information about Customers that is maintained on CKM's systems is protected using industry standard security measures. However, CKM cannot guarantee that the information submitted to CKM using the Site will be completely secure as transmission of information over the Internet is susceptible to possible loss, misrouting, interception and misuse.
