Changing or Removing Information
Access and control over most personal information on Archon is readily available through the profile editing tools. Archon users may modify or remove any of their profile information at any time by logging into their account. Information will be updated immediately. Individuals who wish to deactivate their Archon account may do so on the My Account page. Removed information may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period but will not be generally available to members of Archon.
Where you make use of the communication features of the service to share information with other individuals on Archon, however, (e.g., posting in team forums) you generally cannot remove such communications.
Archon takes appropriate precautions to protect our users’ information. Your account information is located on a secured server behind a firewall. We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card processor using authorize.net and information is stored in a customer profile on their servers. All credit card relevant information from the end-user is not stored directly on our servers. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send private information to us by email or instant messaging services. If you have any questions about the security of the Archon Web Site, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
