There may be occasions where more specific personal information is necessary for SeaWaves Press Inc to proceed with a request for information or provide a product or service. For example, in cases of surveys or feedback forms. In such cases, SeaWaves Press Inc will describe the information required. In all such cases, SeaWaves Press Inc limits the amount and type of information collected to only the personal information that is required to provide the individual with the requested information, product, or service. SeaWaves Press Inc collects only information that is voluntarily provided by the individual and undertakes that such information will be kept strictly confidential.

Service providers are restricted from using or disclosing personal information transferred to them for any purpose other than the provision of services to SeaWaves Press Inc.

Safeguarding Personal Information

SeaWaves Press Inc respects the privacy of its members, partners, potential website visitors and internet users and will protect that privacy as vigorously as possible. Personal information is stored in electronic and physical files that are secure. Security measures include secure locks on filing cabinets, and using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and restricted access to computers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while SeaWaves Press Inc strives to protect personal information, it cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to it or received from it electronically. This is especially true for information transmitted via e-mail. SeaWaves Press Inc has no way of protecting that information until it reaches it. Once a transmission is received, SeaWaves Press Inc makes its best efforts to ensure its security on its servers. Internally, access to personal information is restricted to employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. These employees are limited in number and are knowledgeable about and committed to our privacy policies.
