We implement a secure processing server on our site when collecting information to ensure a high level of security for your personal information entered such as bank details and credit card information. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software.

If MONTALVO learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the MONTALVO Website or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the MONTALVO Website.
