Collection of Your Information
Our web server does not automatically recognize any information regarding the domain or e-mail address of visitors to our site.
The Shingo Prize only stores information that you provide when registering for an event, newsletter or filling out a form through our site. The Shingo Prize does not distribute, sell, or lease member lists to third parties. The Shingo Prize may, from time to time, contact you about a particular offering, to update your member profile, or about The Shingo Prize services that may be of interest to you.
Security of Your Information
The Shingo Prize is committed to protecting the security of your information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in a controlled facility. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number) over the internet, we protect it through the use of 128-bit encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card number when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to Authorize.net for order processing. After order processing we do not store your credit card information.
