The site may use “cookies” to help you personalise your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Text-based Cookies (I.e. non-executable text files) cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. We may in some cases also use web beacons in order to track the opening web pages or emails specific to individual customers and/or visitors.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise pages of the Site, or register with Clear Check site or services, a cookie helps Clear Check to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the Site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Clear Check features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. For more information on cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the Interactive Advertising Bureau at www.allaboutcookies.org. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Clear Check services or websites you visit.
SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Clear Check secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card or debit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. Clear Check does not collect payment information and at no point receive and therefore store the credit/debit card information. Customers of the Site are redirected to a third party payment gateway to submit a payment. While we use industry standard procedures to safeguard your PII once we receive it, no transmission of data over the internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
