Security of Your Personal Information
Merza Cloud is committed to protecting the security of your personal information.

For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information over the Internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
If a password is used to help protect your accounts and personal information, it is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.
Collection and Use of Children's Personal Information
Many of the Merza Cloud services are intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. When the Merza Cloud does collect information from a user identify as under 13, the site will either block such users from providing personal information, or will seek to obtain consent from parents for the collection, use and sharing of their children's personal information. We will not knowingly ask children under the age of 13 to provide more information than is reasonably necessary to provide our services.
Please note that if you grant consent for your child to use the Merza Cloud services, this will include such general audience communication services as e-mail, instant messaging, and online groups, and your child will be able to communicate with, and disclose personal information to, other users of all ages. Parents can change or revoke the consent choices previously made, and review, edit or request the deletion of their children's personal information.
We encourage you to talk with your children about communicating with strangers and disclosing personal information online.

Controlling Unsolicited E-mail ("Spam")
The Merza Cloud is concerned about controlling unsolicited commercial e-mail, or "spam." The Merza Cloud has a strict anti-spam policy prohibiting the use of a Merza Cloud-provided e-mail account to send spam. The Merza Cloud will not sell, lease or rent its e-mail subscriber lists to third parties. While Merza Cloud continues to actively review and implement new technology, such as expanded filtering features, there is no currently available technology that will totally prevent the sending and receiving of unsolicited e-mail. Using junk e-mail tools and being cautious about the sharing of your e-mail address while online will help reduce the amount of unsolicited e-mail you receive.
