Security

App Summit strives to safeguard and protect our account holders’ information. When members submit personally identifiable information to App Summit, their personally identifiable information is protected both online and offline. When our registration process asks registrants to submit Sensitive Information, and when we transmit such Sensitive Information, that Sensitive Information is encrypted and protected with SSL encryption software. While we use SSL encryption to protect Sensitive Information online, we protect all other user information online and offline. The Third Party Agent servers that we utilize to store personally identifiable information in are kept in a secure physical environment. The Third Party Agent has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of personally identifiable information stored on its servers.
Although App Summit takes precautions when managing your data, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, even with encryption. Therefore, we cannot warrant that your information will be absolutely secure. Any transmission of data at or through our Site is at your own risk. However, access to your personally identifiable information is strictly limited, and not accessible to the public. Only staff, and third party agents, that need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to your information when it relates to an internal task. Our staff is dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all user information. Staff not adhering to our written policies are subject to disciplinary action, and/or removal. In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your personally identifiable information. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage, and to engage in remedial measures.
