Changes to our Privacy Policy.

Our website contains the most up-to-date version of this Privacy Policy; please review it periodically for changes.

Security.

We work hard to protect Land Data and our users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of the information we hold. Specifically:

    We use the (SSL) protocol, which encrypts all information you send to us electronically. This processes your information before it is transmitted from your computer  to us. When we receive it we make reasonable efforts to secure it in our system. Unfortunately, as you know, no data transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure. As a result, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
