Data Security Policy
We take your privacy very seriously and strive to securely protect any and all personal information entrusted to us.
United Sport & Cycle protects the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, an industry-standard sha256 SSL. SSL encrypts all of the information you provide to us during your session and prevents unauthorized third parties from viewing any transaction data during transit.
Credit Card Security
United Sport & Cycle does not store your credit card information and we use a third party software that is PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliant. This means your credit card information is protected through a variety of means recommended by the payment card industry, including but not limited to the implementation of firewalls, passwords, encrypted data transmission and storage, anti-virus detection software, regular patches, and policies that restrict access to customer data.
Online Account Security
United Sport & Cycle leverages a third-party software system by a Canadian eCommerce company headquartered in Ottawa, ON. All customer and wholesale account data are securely stored on servers located exclusively in North American data centres.
Data Breach Remediation
United Sport & Cycle takes all practical steps possible to protect your data. However, it is impossible to predict and prevent all potential attempts to compromise user data.
Should a breach impacting any of the above information occur, we pledge to immediately contact affected users via e-mail. Such a communication may include the nature of the breach and the data compromised and how the breach occurred (once known). A notice will also be posted on the homepage of United Sport & Cycle's website at http://www.unitedsport.ca.
