DISCLOSURE OF CUSTOMER INFORMATION THROUGH BUSINESS TRANSFERS

As we continue to develop our business, Thalerus may buy, merge or sell a portion or all of Thalerus’ assets to another entity.  In such transactions, customer information would likely be one of the transferred Thalerus business assets to the other party. Thalerus will not obtain your further consent but will post notice of the transaction on the Site.

Security of information communicated by or to us over the Internet is of utmost concern to us; unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  Please note that your email, like most, if not all, non-encrypted Internet communications, may be accessed and viewed by other Internet users, without your knowledge and permission, while in transit to us.  For that reason, to protect your privacy, please do not use email to communicate information to us that you consider confidential. While we strive to protect your personal information, Thalerus cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or through our Site, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will use reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our internal systems.  Depending on the nature of the inquiry, your communication may be discarded or archived.  If you wish, you may contact us instead via telephone at the numbers provided throughout our Site.
