Storing of credit card information within The Service is not recommended. TeeLeader uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information.  For example, we continuously and regularly backup your data to help prevent data loss and aid in data recovery. We also guard against common web attack vectors, host data in secure SAS 70 audited data centers, and implement firewalls and access restrictions on our servers to secure our network and better protect your information. No method of electronic transmission of storage is 100% secure, however, and we cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of any information you transmit or store in the Service. It is your responsibility to backup your data on a regular basis and to export the data that you may need in case of a system failure. In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, TeeLeader will promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy, or as otherwise required by applicable law.
