We use a browser feature known as a “cookie”, which assigns a unique identification to your computer. Cookies are typically stored on your computer’s hard drive. Information collected from cookies is used by us to evaluate the effectiveness of the Site and/or the Service. The information collected from cookies allows us to determine such things as which parts of our Site are most visited and difficulties our visitors may experience in accessing the Site and/or the Service. With this knowledge, we can improve the quality of your experience on the Site and/or the Service.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure of information we have physical, electronic and managerial procedures in place to keep your personal information safe. Once logged into your Account, all internet communication is secured using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology with high security 128bit encryption.
However, this high level of protection can only be effective if you follow certain security practices yourself. You must never share your Account login details with anyone. If you are concerned that any of your login details have been compromised, you can change them any time once you are logged on but you should always also immediately contact us and tell us why you think your login details have been compromised. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Site. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
BITOK.COM WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY LEAK OF PERSONAL INFORMATION CAUSED BY HACKING OR ANY OTHER CYBERCRIME.
If your personal information (such as your name, address, or telephone number) changes, you should update it. We shall not be liable for any loss arising out of your failure to keep your personal information up to date.
NOTE: You have the right to access information that we hold about you. To do so, please contact our support. Access may be subject to a fee.
