Additionally, if there are any disclosure or use restrictions in your consent to the collection of your personal information, Encircle will abide by those restrictions.
Encircle may combine your information with other information into an aggregate form, so your information no longer personally identifies you.

We may also disclose any other information that is not considered to be private or personal information by law.
Encircle provides your information to third parties only for purposes to which you have consented, and we require such third parties to keep your information confidential.

Encircle will always try to provide you with prior notice of such disclosure; however, such notice may not always be possible or reasonable given the circumstances.

We follow generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
