E-mail is an important communication channel between Eye of the Sea, its users and prospective customers. E-mail sent to Eye of the Sea from within our Website (after you have logged on with your account number and password) is secured with the same Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology used to transmit private account information.

ANY INFORMATION POSTED, STORED OR OTHERWISE TRANSMITTED TO NON-PUBLIC PORTIONS OF THE WEBSITE WILL BE TREATED AS CONFIDENTIAL AND PROPRIETARY INFORMATION AND WILL NOT BE DISCLOSED TO ANY THIRD PARTY WITHOUT YOUR EXPRESS WRITTEN CONSENT, OR AS OTHERWISE PROVIDED HEREIN.

NO LIABILITY FOR ACTS OF THIRD PARTIES
Although Eye of the Sea will use commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of Information, transmissions made by means of the Internet cannot be made absolutely secure. Eye of the Sea shall have no liability for disclosure or access to Information due to errors in transmission, unauthorized access, or other acts of third parties, as further described in Terms and Conditions.
Eye of the Sea may provide links to other websites or allow other website to link to this Website. Eye of the Sea does not control these other websites, Eye of the Sea is not responsible for them, and Eye of the Sea makes no representations as to their information collection practices. Eye of the Sea encourages you to review and understand the privacy policies on these websites before providing any information to them. Any complaints regarding this Website should be submitted to Eye of the Sea at 434 Hudson Street, 4th fl, New York, NY 10014 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The fact that Eye of the Sea provides any such links is not an endorsement, authorization, sponsorship, or affiliation with respect to such website, its privacy and or security policies, its owners, or its providers. You agree that under no circumstances will you hold Eye of the Sea liable for any loss or damage caused by use of or reliance on the information collection practices of any other website.
Eye of the Sea has taken commercially reasonable security measures to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under its control. All information is stored in a secure operating environment. When sending sensitive information across the Internet – including your username, password, and purchasing information such as credit cards – Eye of the Sea uses encryption software to encrypt all information sent or received so that it cannot be intercepted and used by a foreign party. Once your information is received, it is stored on a secure server, and access to your data is restricted to you and authorized personnel. Eye of the Sea also restricts access to the personal and account information of customers to those employees and third parties who need to know that information in the course of their job responsibilities and as required for Eye of the Sea to provide Services to customers.
Any personal information you send us is encrypted by Secure Socket Layers (SSL), which protects information you submit or receive through this Website. In addition, any sensitive personal information that you send to our Website (such as social security number or mother’s maiden name) is held in a secured environment, protected by tools such as firewalls and/or database field encryption. Eye of the Sea uses firewalls to help limit entry by anyone without proper authorization. A firewall is a security mechanism that (1) regulates the data going in and out of a network,(2) it is a commonly used, specialized computer which acts as a shield against data going in or out of a network, and (3) It checks to make sure that communications only occur between approved individuals and that the communication is in the proper protocol.
No representation is made, however, regarding the unconditional security of such submissions. Eye of the Sea requires that your browser support SSL, and does not allow information to be stored on your hard drive unless you specifically download it and save it on your computer. For security reasons, access to this site is limited to SSL-capable browsers like Netscape Navigator 6.2 or higher or Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher. These browsers will activate SSL automatically whenever you sign on to your Eye of the Sea account. Under no circumstances should you use any software, program, application, or any other device to access or log-in to the website, or to automate the process of obtaining, downloading, transferring, or transmitting any content to or from Eye of the Sea’ computer systems, website, or proprietary software.
You can tell if you are visiting a secure area within a website by looking at the symbol on the bottom of your browser screen. If you are using Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer, you will see either a lock or a key. When the symbol appears unbroken or the padlock is in the locked position, your session connection is taking place via a secure server. If you need a strong encryption browser, you can go to the Netscape website or the Microsoft website to download the latest Navigator or Internet Explorer browser. Eye of the Sea does not recommend the use of beta browser versions.
