We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Optando and you do so at your own risk. Using unsecured wifi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the Optando Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, Optando makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If Optando learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Optando may post a notice on the Optando Site or through the Optando Service if a security breach occurs.Our Commitment To Childrens' Privacy
