Backup files protect you and us because they lower the risk of losing valuable data. Backup files may contain records with your personal information. Removing a record from our active files and databases does not remove that record from any backup systems. Such backup data will eventually be passively deleted as backup records are erased through the normal recycling of backup files. In the meantime, as long as backup records exist, they receive the same security protections as our other records.
  10. Security. Communications between your browser and portions of the Website containing personally identifiable information may be protected with various forms of encryption.

  11. Security Breach. If we determine that your personal information has or may reasonably have been disclosed due to a security breach of our systems, we will notify you to the extent required by applicable state and federal law, using your information that we have on file.
