SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED VIA THE WEBSITE
BEECOOLESTCOMPANY has implemented reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to and unlawful interception or processing of personal information that BEECOOLESTCOMPANY stores and controls.

We will post a reasonably prominent notice to the Website if any such security breach occurs.
