You may choose not to provide some of the personal information described above. Please note, however, that many of our services require some personal information to operate, so if you choose not to provide the personal information necessary to operate and provide you with a particular service or feature of that service, you may not be able to use that service or feature.

We do not proactively collect sensitive personal information, such as health-related information, political opinions, religious beliefs, or genetic data.

IV. Collection of Personal Information

We collect Personal Information from you when you opt into our services via other websites. It is optional for you to opt into our services. We collect additional personal information directly from you through SwyftBooks.com, after you opt into the services through other websites. We reserve the right to request additional items of personal information about you and your company if necessary to provide you with the contracted services. When you order services, we may also ask you to provide us with your credit card number, expiration date and authentication codes or related information. If you do not provide certain mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that activity.

V. Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

Cookies are small pieces of data contained in text files, which are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser.

A. First Party Cookies. SwyftBooks.com utilizes cookies, web beacons, and other technologies to allow the Website to "personalize" itself for each user by remembering information about the user's visit to the website. For instance, by using the cookies generated by SwyftBooks.com (“First Party Cookies”) your information is retained so you do not have to continually log back into your account each time you move to a different page. First Party Cookies remain associated with you. However, no third party may use the information we collect through our First Party Cookies for their own purposes. Deletion of these cookies may result in limited functionality of the Website and associated services.

The use of these technologies by such third parties is subject to their own privacy policies and is not covered by this Policy, except as required by law.

B. Opting Out of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies. See section XII.B for your rights regarding opting out of cookies.

VI. Collection of Anonymous Information

We use technology to passively collect and store certain information that is not tied to a specific identified user. This information is sufficiently de-identified according to the standards of applicable laws and will not be associated with an identifiable individual.

Should you be directed to any third party site from the Website, we are not responsible for the acts of other sites and this Privacy Policy does not apply to that site.

VII. Storage and Protection of Your Information

A. Location. Your Personal Information may be processed and stored outside of your jurisdiction where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country or state. Your Personal Information will not, however, be used or disclosed for purposes for which you have not given consent or which are not permitted under applicable law.

B. Protection. We have put in place safeguards to provide adequate protection for the storage and transfer of personal information, including the presence of a SSL certificate and other encryption protocol in accordance with applicable legal requirements.

C. Storage of Credit Card Information. To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure your credit card information is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with an AES-256 encryption. Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we implement additional generally accepted industry standards. Because your annual fees are set to auto-renew, we maintain access to your credit and debit card information through a third-party payment processor. We do not store your credit card or debit card information ourselves. We do not access such information for other purposes without your permission. While credit or debit card information is safeguarded through our third-party service provider, no method of electronic storage is 100% and we cannot guarantee its absolute security. When your credit or debit card account information is being transmitted through our Website, it will be protected by security protocols.

D. Disclaimer of Guaranty of Security. We believe we have taken reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information. No one can fully guarantee or fully eliminate all risks associated with Personal Information and we make no such guarantees.
