Steps We Take To Protect Your Information

We Encrypt Your Password
Believe it or not, a lot of websites still store passwords in plain text so anyone who has access to the database can see your password. We encrypt your password so we have no way to tell what your password is. Fun tip: To see if any specific site encrypts your password, request your login information through their login form and if they send you back your password then you know they don’t encrypt it.

We Use SSL to Login. When you log in to applications it is done over SSL so if someone wants to try to steal your login credentials when you log in they wouldn’t be able to sniff it over the network. SSL is the same technology your bank uses when you log in to their website.

Surgeon General’s Warning

Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you share your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on Vinegar Strokes will not become publicly available. We can’t be responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on Vinegar Strokes. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up-to-date antivirus software.

The current version of the policy will govern our use of your information and will always be available at https://smartlittlemachine/privacy  By continuing to access or use the Services after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.
