Opting Out; How Can You Control the Use of Information?
Is Your Information Secure?
The security of all Information associated with users of this Web Site is an important concern to Sterling Cooper. Sterling Cooper exercises reasonable care in providing secure transmission of your Information from your computer to Sterling Cooper's servers and databases. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Sterling Cooper strives to protect your Information, Sterling Cooper cannot ensure or warrant the security of any Information you transmit to Sterling Cooper, and you do so at your own risk. Once you complete the transmission of, and Sterling Cooper receives, your Information, Sterling Cooper uses industry standard efforts and practices to safeguard the confidentiality of your Personal Information, and uses commercially reasonable efforts to collect and secure such Personal Information consistent with all applicable laws and regulations. Sterling Cooper takes commercially reasonable efforts to use a variety of different security measures (such as encryption, digital certificates, firewalls and Secure Socket Layers) designed to protect Personal Information from access by unauthorized users both inside and outside of Sterling Cooper, and to protect against the unauthorized or improper alteration or destruction of such Personal Information. Sterling Cooper's communication system, software and database practices have been designed to aid in supporting authenticity, integrity and confidentiality. However, as described above, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet and, despite these reasonable efforts by Sterling Cooper to maintain data and Information security, Sterling Cooper cannot guarantee the security of data or Information.
