6. Security

Creative Newtech understands the importance of protecting the security and integrity of Personal Information shared with us and will endeavour to safeguard your Personal Information. It is also important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. We urge you to keep your account login information in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also, remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or an Internet cafe.

Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet and no data storage can be 100% secure. Consequently, while Creative Newtech will endeavor to safeguard your Personal Information, Creative Newtech cannot guarantee the absolute security of such Personal Information.
