Also, in the unlikely event that Teranet or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.

Safeguarding Information:

We have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We have adopted appropriate safeguards to ensure that personal information is secure against disclosure, loss or theft or unauthorized access, copying, use or modification.

Our employees are aware of the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of personal information. Please see our Security Statement.

As the Internet is not a totally secure medium, we cannot guarantee that our safeguards will always be totally effective particularly in cases of fraudulent conduct or fraudulent concealment, provision by third parties of incorrect data, willful actions by third parties to corrupt or tamper with the database and/or the data and other such actions or occurrences.
