Information and Network Security
Virtual Halo takes active measures to safeguard your information and prevent loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. All information we collect via the Virtual Halo app or website is encrypted over HTTPS, the same security protocol used by banks, and is stored in a controlled environment with limited access only to authorized Virtual Halo affiliates. While we take all reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, we are not liable for information breach resulting from limitations to the security of our systems; no information security system is absolutely immune to breach and we assume no liability in the event of such breach.
Virtual Halo services are accessible through the use of a valid telephone number and password. You may also elect to use a check-in password and/or duress code during your interaction with Virtual Halo. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep your password and any elected codes confidential. Please notify us immediately if you detect suspected misuse of your account. We will never ask you to disclose your password in an unsolicited phone call, email or other form of communication.
