HOW WE PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION
Security – We follow generally accepted industry standards such as CPNI and GDPR to protect personal information, during transmission and once we receive it.

Encryption - Any data collected by Call.Net. for the purposes of assessments and to provide its Services may be protected by encryption. This means we may keep data in an unreadable state unless a user or process presents the appropriate key. In accordance with data protection regulations, this simple control method restricts data processing only for authorized use and restricts the amount of time that you are identifiable by your data. Our data may be encrypted at rest and in transit. Encryption prevents unauthorized data manipulation; limits data access to authorized users and monitors key usage to ensure that the data cannot be changed without authorization. Call.Net ’s use of encryption together with our access controls provides users to have confidence in their data’s integrity.
Transit – When we need to transfer information out of our firewall, we may use encryption methods to protect your data while in transit through the Internet. We may use encryption and a comprehensive authentication protocol to provide reasonable security. Therefore, while we use the highest standards commercially available to protect your personal information, no method of transmission over the Internet or method can ever guarantee its absolute security.
