1. We may collect personally identifiable information from you, such as your name, email address or mailing address, when you visit the Web Site, provide us with such personally identifiable information through the Web Site or email us with a question or concern.

3. All of the customer data we collect is stored on a secured server to protect against unauthorized access. Carteirra takes information security very seriously and uses reasonable administrative, technical, physical and managerial measures to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access.
