We use this information to help us quickly and efficiently respond to inquiries and requests, to troubleshoot technical issues, and otherwise improve the Switch and Shift site; and to enhance our service offering for our customers.

In addition to cookies, we use other technologies to gather information on how our users interact with our site and to otherwise help us efficiently operate and monitor our site and the services we may offer. These technologies may show us popular pages, conversion rates, click-throughs and other information that can be used to improve, operate and monitor our site and our service.

Disclosure of Personal Information
We use other companies, agents or contractors to perform services on our behalf. For example, we have partnered with other companies to personalize and optimize the pages on SwitchandShift.com, process credit card transactions, collect debts, analyze and enhance data (including customers’ interaction with our site) and process consumer surveys.
From time to time, we may partner with companies whose products we believe will interest our users. In conjunction with these partners, we may send promotional announcements and/or serve web-based advertisements to our subscribers and customers on their behalf.
Switch and Shift uses all reasonable administrative, technical and managerial measures to protect your personal information and payment methods from unauthorized access.
For example, we utilize Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) digital certificate, an industry-standard protocol that encrypts Switch and Shift user’s data, to register and process payment information with the utmost security. In addition, Switch and Shift uses the PCI Data Security Standard which incorporates the various cardholder security programs previously created by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information and for restricting access to your computer or mobile device through which you log in to your Switch and Shift account. Users of public or shared computers (at work, libraries, internet café’s) or unprotected mobile devices should log out at the completion of each visit to Switch and Shift. Switch and Shift highly discourages sharing or allowing access of your personal Switch and Shift account with unregistered internet users.
We strive to provide a safe, secure environment by attempting to limit access to our database to legitimate users, but cannot guarantee that unauthorized parties will not gain access. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and cannot assume liability for improper access.
