We try to reduce the likelihood of accidental disclosures and unintended access and modification of account information, but it is impossible to eliminate this possibility completely.

Employees who have access to identifiable information are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected.
As a Preferred Customer, your company and certain designated employees will receive a password, which should be kept confidential, because it is the key to access the information held by TricorBraun.com about your company.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example on message boards, through email, or in chat areas - that information can be collected and used by others. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information.
