Security Policy (How We Protect Your Data)
- We employ a secure channel, using Secure Sockets Layer encryption, the standard for secure Internet network connections, to protect information exchanged over the Internet between your web browser and our servers.
- We use automated tools to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload information, change information, or otherwise seek to gain unauthorized entry into our systems.
- We take additional steps to protect especially sensitive information, including the information you provide on our Investor Questionnaire.
- In general, we use the same level of data encryption that is used by banks.
Nevertheless, no security system is perfect. We cannot guaranty that your personal information will remain private. If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate steps. We may post notice on the Site in such an event.
Privacy Steps You Can Take
Users should take precautions to maximize security. For example, choose well formed, difficult to guess passwords. An industry standard, updated antivirus as well as firewall software for malware and external attack protection is recommended. These software applications should do regular sweeps of your computer as well for continual protection from malware. After you are done using the website, log out and close the browser.
Users should be aware of “phishing” – a scheme whereby a scammer will try to bring unsuspecting users to a website by using genuine looking email claiming to be a legitimate company. They may try to get you to divulge login information to gain fraudulent access to your accounts. Note that FundingNomad will never send you email asking for your login information. Users should protect themselves by never providing sensitive personal or login information via email communication or otherwise.
