Will my personal and account information be provided to any other party?
Blackline does not share, sell, or rent your personal information to a third party. We may use your personal data in order to analyse our customer base. Statistical information may be shared with third parties – but Blackline Safety will ensure your anonymity. We take every reasonable measure to protect your information and will not provide your information to any authority without a properly issued warrant.
Our websites are designed with industry standard security measures including 256 bit SSL encryption in areas that require information submission or login credentials. The 256 bit SSL encryption is used by websites to ensure that any information transmitted from you, the user, to us here at Blackline Safety is protected from prying eyes, misuse, or alteration due to interception. We are confident in our security measures and it has always been a top priority to ensure that the information of our clients, potential clients, or site users is kept strictly confidential. Any client information held by Blackline Safety will not be released under any circumstances without a court warrant.
While we take every reasonable measure to ensure that your information is kept safe in our confidence, the nature of the internet makes it impossible to guarantee that this information will not be breached by a third party by means of data decryption or any other method. While it is extremely unlikely that this would ever occur, Blackline Safety holds no responsibility for breaches of information caused by either a malicious or non-malicious third party.
This policy may change, and if it does, any changes will be identified on the Blackline Safety websites. That way you’ll always be fully aware of what information is collected, how it’s used and under which circumstances it may be made available.
