What is our goal with your information?
When you sign up for our newsletter, participate in contests, surveys, or other activities requiring your information on our site, we use your information in the following ways:

Each newsletter will have an “opt-out” link at the very bottom of the page. If you no longer wish to receive communications like this from us, simply click that link and follow the directions to opt out.
How do we keep your information safe?
Your information is safe with us. We use several online security measures to ensure that this information stays with Security Picks at all times. Your information is only accessible by a few choice people who have access rights to our secured network and website management systems and all such people are legally required to keep your information completely confidential.
Links to other websites

If you find a link that doesn’t work, or if it’s sending you to the wrong place, we want to know so we can improve our guests’ browsing experience.
