Our Security and Storage Measures
At LIZZYKNOWS we seek to maintain the integrity and security of your Personal Information.
We use industry-standard encryption protocols when receiving and transferring your Personal Information. In fact, when you send Personal Information to us over the Internet, we first require that a "secure session" be established using Secure Socket Layer (SSL).
We seek to store your Personal Information in secure operating environments that are not accessible to the general public, and to have security measures in place at our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your Personal Information by our employees or third parties.
However, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage environment can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, so we cannot give an absolute assurance that the information you provide to us will be secure at all times. LIZZYKNOWS will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorized access to your Personal Information. LIZZYKNOWS will rely on you telling us if you experience any unusual events that may indicate a breach in your information security.

Further action, such as reporting incidents to the police or other proper authorities, may also be required.
