We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.

Service Providers: We engage selected trusted Third Party companies to assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you (e.g. hosting services, shipping services, payment processing services- collectively, “Service Providers“). One of our Service Providers in particular is our e-commerce platform, Wix. This platform allows us to share and sell our Resources online and simplify your user experience.

Security - How We Protect Your Information

Secure Online Ordering:
When you provide information on any of our order forms to make a purchase, the transactional information that you provide is transmitted in a safe, encrypted format which is the most secure way currently available to protect your credit card information. Our payment gateway providers (PayPal and Stripe) use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology, an industry-standard protocol used to establish secure communications between a web server and a client.

PayPal and Stripe adhere to the standards set by PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). PCI DSS is a set of comprehensive requirements that help ensure secure handling of credit card information. .

For more information on our payment gateway providers please see below:

 

Sign2Read uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your information.  We will strive to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information, however, no security system is impenetrable and no data transmission over the Internet, by wireless device or over the air is guaranteed to be 100% secure. We cannot provide assurance or guarantee that any information you transmit to us will remain free from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties who, despite our efforts, obtain unauthorized access.  We will continue to enhance security procedures as new technologies and procedures become available.

Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. Sign2Read does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, if we learn that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information without parental consent we will remove that information.
