This data may or may not be sufficient to identify you. Any additional data that you provide, e.g. in a web-form, may also be logged. This data may or may not be sufficient to identify you. Any additional data that your web-browser automatically provides may also be logged. This will be the case, for example, if your browser has previously been requested to store data on your computer in cookies and submits them each time you request a web-page within a particular domain (such as 12visitme.com). This data may or may not be sufficient to identify you. If you disclose personal data to 12visitme in conjunction with an identifier such as your name or your credit-card details, 12visitme will collect this personal information. 12visitme is constantly tring to improve its website.

12visitme takes appropriate measures to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personal information submitted to our sites, and periodically updates its security measures in light of current technologies. You need to be aware, however, of inherent risks associated with the transmission of information via the Internet. Passwords you provide are encrypted before they are stored in our database. This means they will not be disclosed in the case somebody will gain access to our database, or even by somebody of the staff. This also means that in case you forget your password, you will be provided a new password, since we cannot recover your old password. 12visitme cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any personal information you submit to our sites.
