We realise how important it is for us to safeguard any personal information that may reveal your identity or account information, whether you are our client or a visitor to our Web site’s public domain.
When you apply for or maintain an account with AxiCorp, we collect personal information about you for business purposes, such as evaluating your application to open account, processing your requests and transactions, informing you about products and services that may be of interest to you, and providing client service. The personal information we collect about you may include:
We take all reasonable steps to protect your personal information from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. We limit access to your personal information to those employees who need to know in order to conduct our business, service your account and providing you with a broad range of products and services. Our employees are required to maintain and protect the confidentiality of your personal information and must follow established procedures to do so. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. We do not disclose your name or personal information to anyone unless authorised, or required by law, to do so.
Cookies are small files containing information that a Web site uses to track its visitors. AxiCorp may set and access AxiCorp cookies on your computer, enabling us to learn which advertisements and promotions bring users to our Web site. AxiCorp or any of its affiliates or divisions may use such cookies.
AxiCorp uses GeoTrust Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology in order to protect the information that you submit to us. This type of technology is designed to protect you from having your information intercepted by anyone other than AxiCorp while it is being transmitted to us. We also use other safeguards such as firewalls, authentication systems (e.g., passwords and personal identification numbers) and access control mechanisms to control unauthorised access to systems and data. However, you acknowledge and accept that any services provided through the Website involve transmissions over the internet and that such transmissions are therefore subject to the internet’s inherent risks. Whilst we acknowledge our responsibility to take reasonable security precautions, you also acknowledge and accept that, as with any network, you may also be exposed to unauthorised programs transmitted by third parties, electronic trespassing and/or the failure of information and data to reach their intended destinations and/or erroneous receipt or misdirection of such information. Although our and our suppliers’ privacy and security features are designed to reduce these risks, we cannot guarantee that the risk can be eliminated completely. You therefore acknowledge that we will not be liable for any breach of confidence or unauthorised access and use arising as a result of such event.
