We follow reasonable technical and management practices to help protect the confidentiality, security, and integrity of data stored in our system. While no computer system is completely secure, we believe that the measures that we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security issues at a level that is appropriate for the type of data collected by our website. Heat Lounge servers use Secure Socket Layer (SSL), an encryption technology that works with Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and AOL’s browser, so that only Heat Lounge can read customer information.

We generally keep user data on our server or in our archives for as long as we deem reasonable. We may alter our practices at management’s discretion. For example, we may delete some data if needed to free up storage space. We may keep other data for longer periods if the law requires it. In addition, information posted in a public forum could stay in the public domain indefinitely. Data management requests are administered in an orderly manner to the extent feasible and within our direct control. Note: we have greater control over recently collected data than archived data. Once data is removed from the system and archived, it may not be feasible to accommodate specific requests. In those cases, our general data retention policy applies.
