For example, we may partner with other companies to process your payments or store your data to support delivery of our products or Services. Whenever we share data with third-party services, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we’ve authorized, and that they protect your personal information at least to the same standards we do.

  1. Protection of your Personal Information

We take the security of your personal information seriously and follow industry-standard practices to protect the data we collect and process. World Trade Month has therefore put in place commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the personal information that World Trade Month collects. Access to personal information will be restricted to our authorized personnel who require the information in order to perform their duties properly. In addition, access will be limited to only that information that is strictly necessary for the performance of those duties.

Remember, the safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where you have chosen, or where we have given you a username and password for access to certain parts of the Site or Services, you are responsible for keeping the username and password confidential. No method of transmission over the internet or electronic storage is completely secure, so World Trade Month cannot guarantee its absolute security.

While recognizing that one of World Trade Month’s Services includes an email newsletter, we try to keep email communications to a minimum and give you the ability to opt out of any marketing communications we send. For example, we may send you email relating to the Services we offer. You may also elect to receive certain marketing email communications, in accordance with your preferences, and from which you may opt out at any time.  You can always opt out of receiving email information or mobile device notifications from World Trade Month (other than certain required communications informing you of the completion of a purchase, user registration, correction of user data, or change of password), by sending us an email at worldtrademonth@gmail.com stating your request. If we have sent you a promotional email or mobile device notification, you may send us a return email or mobile device communication asking to be omitted from future email or mobile device distributions.
