We Value The Privacy Of Your Personal Information

SOMF has formed this policy to express our commitment to privacy because information is an important part of our business and we understand how important it is for you to know what will happen to personal information you give us. We hope this statement will answer your questions about our information policies and security precautions.

Electronic Communications via Forms - For quality assurance and spam protection, messages sent through the forms in this site are monitored.  We do not share or distribute any of the information passed to any parties other then the intended recipient.

Personal Information - You browse the SOMF web sites anonymously. There are two ways that we gather information about you.

Security of Personal Data - SOMF is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We employ industry-standard security measures to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information we collect. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number) over the internet we protect it through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
