Additionally we will not request any confidential or personal information through a social networking site such as Twitter™, MySpace™, or Facebook™.
What else should you know about your privacy?
If you choose to use the SketchyMedical website you should be aware that any information transmitted electronically via the World Wide Web might not be secure. SketchyMedical assumes no liability for the loss of any information that you transmit to us via the World Wide Web.
In communicating with you, we may send e-mail as unencrypted plain text because we are aware that most customers cannot easily process encrypted e-mail. This is done for your convenience, but with the security concern that, if misrouted or intercepted, it could be read more easily than encrypted e-mail.
