VI. Children

Protecting the safety of children when they use the Internet is very important to us. Our Website should only be accessed by individuals of Minimum Age. “Minimum Age” may mean different ages in different countries, depending on where the individual accesses the Website. For reference, “Minimum Age” shall mean (a) 14 years old for the United States, Canada, Germany, Spain, Australia, and South Korea; and (b) 13 years old for all other countries. However, if applicable law requires that you must be older than such ages in order for Metal Roofing Consultants to lawfully provide the Website to you (including the collection, storage, and use of your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy), then the Minimum Age would be such older age. The Website is not designed nor intended for use by children or anyone else under the age of 13.

VII. Security

We use industry best practices to keep any information collected and/or transmitted to the Supported Platforms secure. This includes the use of HTTPS with TLS (Transport Layer Security), which encrypts all transmitted data, and OAuth 2.0 protocols for authentication and data transfer to Supported Platforms.

Metal Roofing Consultants uses third-party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology required to run the Website. These vendors have been selected for their high standards of both physical and technological security, including ISO and SSAE16 certifications.

You should bear in mind that submission of information over the Internet is never entirely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of information you submit via the Website whilst it is in transit over the Internet and any such submission is at your own risk, and this risk is specifically disclaimed in our Terms.
