Among other practices, Customer’s account is protected by a password for Customer’s privacy and security. Customers must prevent unauthorised access to Customer’s account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting Customer’s password appropriately and limiting access to Customer’s computer or device and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing Customer’s account. Transmission of information via regular email exchange is not always completely secure. The Company however exercises all possible actions to protect Customers’ personal data, yet it cannot guarantee the security of Customer data that is transmitted via email; any transmission is at the Customers’ own risk. Once the Company has received the Customer information it will use procedures and security features in an attempt to prevent unauthorised access. Emails are stored on Company’s standard internal contact systems which are secure and cannot be accessed by unauthorised external parties.

Swaps uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt and protect the data you send us over the internet. If SSL is enabled, you will see a padlock at the top of your browser and you can click on this to find out more information about the SSL digital certificate registration.
