Security and Data Retention

To protect your privacy and information, Honest Herb uses multiple security procedures and practices to protect from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification and disclosure of Personal Information of users.

When you enter Personal Information on our Site and Application, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). SSL creates a secured connection between our web servers and your browser, which protects against unauthorized access to transmitted data and supports data being sent only to intended recipients.

Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to Honest Herb. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your Honest Herb Account ID, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited email or telephone communication.

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Site and Application, you can contact us at support@callhonestherb.com.

Note that we will make any legally required disclosures of any breach of the security, confidentiality, or integrity of your unencrypted electronically stored “personal data” (as defined in applicable state statutes on security breach notification) to you via email or conspicuous posting on the Site and Application in the most expedient time possible and without unreasonable delay, insofar as consistent with (i) the legitimate needs of law enforcement or (ii) any measures necessary to determine the scope of the breach and restore the reasonable integrity of the data system.

Sharing personal email addresses, phone numbers, Skype/IM usernames or any other personal contact details.

All communications, information and files exchanged should be performed exclusively using Honest Herb’s messaging system. The main reason this it is required is to keep communications and transactions on Honest Herb is for your safety. The internet industry has traditionally been inundated with risk and uncertainty. Honest Herb is a new form of communications. For this community to thrive, security and trust must be maintained for all users. This is only possible through maintaining initial conversations within the Honest Herb application. Protecting our users’ privacy is of critical concern for everyone on the Honest Herb team. To protect our users’ privacy, personal information should be kept anonymous. Requesting or providing email addresses, skype/IM usernames or other personal contact details (other than your name) are strictly prohibited. Honest Herb’s Call Back service and User Inboxes are designed to enable communication between all users.

International Transfer

Honest Herb and its third party partners to whom we disclose information under this policy may perform activities outside of the United States and potentially collect, transfer, store, and process your personal information in other countries. As a result, your information may be subject to the laws of those countries or other jurisdictions. These laws may not be equivalent to the privacy and data protection laws in your jurisdiction. Information may be disclosed in response to valid demands or requests from government authorities, courts, or law enforcement in these countries. By using the Site, Application or providing us with your information, you consent to the potential collection, transfer, storage, and processing of information in other countries.
