We require unique keys for developers who want to return data, and we reserve the right to revoke an app key if our developer terms and conditions or guidelines are not followed. In addition, we use industry-standard protocols for authorization.

Confidentiality

We hold our employees to strict guidelines regarding confidentiality and do not allow disclosure of personal or private contact information to any third party without permission. We limit the access and use of personal information to personnel with a legitimate business need.

Data Transmission and Disposal

AreaMetrics uses reasonable encryption methods for transmission of information across networks and has implemented processes for the secure disposal of personal information.
