III. HOW THE ORC PROTECTS INFORMATION

 

The ORC implements security measures designed to protect the Members information from unauthorized access. A Members account is protected by the Members account password and the ORC urges each Member to take steps to keep the Members personal information safe by not disclosing the Members password and by logging out of the Members account after each use. The ORC further protects the Members information from potential security breaches by implementing certain technological security measures including encryption, firewalls and secure socket layer technology. However, these measures do not guarantee that the Members information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software. By using the ORC’s Service mediums, each Member acknowledges that each Member understands and agrees to assume these risks.
