How We Protect the Security of Personally Identifiable Information
The security of your PII is important to us. We exercise reasonable care in implementing generally accepted standards of security to protect your PII from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption for some of your more sensitive PII (such as credit card information and state ID numbers). It is our policy to retain PII for only as long as we believe appropriate for the purposes for which the PII was collected or as required by applicable law. Unfortunately, "perfect security" does not exist on the Internet, and no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we take reasonable efforts to protect your PII, we cannot guarantee that PII stored on our servers, or transmitted to or from a user, will be free from unauthorized access. By using our websites and corresponding with us, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account passcode, membership numbers and pin numbers, and you will be responsible for any access to or use of our websites by you or any person or entity using a passcode provided to you, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by or on behalf of you, and whether or not such person or entity is your employee, relative or agent. In the event of the unauthorized use of your passcode, account, or membership number, or any other breach of security involving your information as it pertains to Sixt, you agree to immediately notify us. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that you exit from your account at the end of each session, control the dissemination and use of your passcode, control access to and use of your account and membership number, and notify us when you desire to cancel your account on our Websites. We will not be responsible or liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with this provision. It is our policy that we will never request your sensitive PII, such as your credit card number, passcode, membership number or pin number, in an e-mail, text or on a website that is not located at the domain name used by Sixt or an affiliate. If you receive an e-mail or other correspondence requesting that you provide any such information via e-mail or to a website that is not on such domain name, please do not provide such information, and report such request to our privacy officer at InvestorRelations(at)sixt.com.
In the unlikely event that we have reason to believe that the security of your PII in our possession or control may have been compromised, we will notify you consistent with the applicable laws and regulations. If a notification is appropriate, we will do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances. If we have your current e-mail address on file, we may notify you by e-mail.
