a specific job (for example, a billing clerk or a customer service
representative) will be granted access to personally identifiable
information. Furthermore, all employees will be kept up to date
on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as
at any time new policies are added, our employees will be notified
and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what
they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally,
the servers that we use to store personally identifiable information
will be kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
