We are not responsible for effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.

Secured2 takes reasonable precautions, including the maintenance of reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards, to help protect your information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized or illegal access, disclosure, alteration, modification, use or destruction. Secured2 has implemented reasonable security measures to help protect your email address and the Secured2 service passwords associated with your email address from unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, unlawful destruction, or accidental loss. When appropriate, Secured2 uses industry-standard encryption to protect certain data (e.g., credit card numbers) during transmission. The servers on which we store your information are kept in an environment that is controlled and monitored 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Although Secured2 uses reasonable efforts to help protect your information, transmission via the Internet, Wi-Fi or mobile network is not completely secure and Secured2 cannot guarantee the security of your information. It remains your responsibility:

  • To protect against unauthorized access to your use of the Site and Services.
  • To ensure no one else uses the Site or Services while your machine is logged on to the Site or Services (including by logging on to your machine through a mobile, Wi-Fi or shared access connection you are using).
  • To log off or exit from the Site and Services when not using them.
  • To keep your password or other access information secret and all your account details secure. Your Secured2 Service passwords and log in details are personal to you and should not be given to anyone else or used to provide shared access, for example, over a network.
  • To maintain good Internet security. For example, if your email account is compromised, this could allow access to your account with us. If your email account is compromised it could be used to ask us to reset a password and gain access to your account with us.

If you think that any of your accounts has been compromised you should change your account credentials with us, and in particular make sure any compromised account (even one from another service) does not allow access to your account with us. Never use the same passwords for different accounts (among the Secured2 Company Services or with respect to other unrelated services). You should also tell us as soon as you can so that we can try to help you keep your account secure and if necessary, warn anyone else who could be affected.

Data Storage

Most account information (including email addresses, public keys, names, and mailing addresses, but excluding credit card information used for payment to Secured2) is stored on servers in the United States, Europe, and other global locations. This means that we redundantly store data on more than one server in one of those locations.

You can also request deletion of all your Secured2 Company Service accounts.

Once per calendar year, the customer has the right to request that the business provide a list of companies with which it shares the personal information for the third parties’ or affiliates’ direct marketing purposes, and a list of the categories of personal information that the business shares. As stated in this Policy, we do not share personal information as defined under the Shine the Light law with third parties or affiliates for those third parties’ or affiliates’ direct marketing purposes. California customers can request further information about our compliance with this law by e-mailing or contacting us by mail at 6160 Summit Drive North #345, Minneapolis MN 55430, USA.

You will also have the right effective January 1, 2020, to request that we delete personal information we hold about you if we collected the information directly from you. If you represent a business, you do not have rights to request access to our deletion of your information pursuant to the CCPA.

To exercise your access or deletion rights as a California resident consumer customer email us at

Effective January 1, 2020, to the extent Secured2 sells your personal information as the term “sell” is defined under CCPA, you have the right to opt-out of sales of your personal information to third parties at any time. Secured2 does not sell personal information as the term “sell” is traditionally understood. However, to the extent the CCPA is interpreted to include advertising technology activities such as those disclosed in the “Analytics and Advertising” section of our policy as a “sale,” Secured2 will comply with applicable law as to such activity. Please email us at if you have us remove your information from any sales activities.

As of the posting of this updated privacy policy, certain provisions of the CCPA may change. Secured2 reserves the right to revise the sections of this policy that are impacted by those changes until such time as the regulations are finalized. Given the potential changes in the law, the rights available to California residents may change at any time. 

European Privacy Rights

If you are a data subject in Europe, you have the right to access, rectify, or erase any personal data we have collected about you. You also have the right to data portability and the right to restrict or object to our processing of personal data we have collected about you. In addition, you have the right to ask us not to process your personal data (or provide it to third parties to process) for marketing purposes or purposes materially different than for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time for any data processing we do based on consent you have provided to us.

To exercise any of these rights, contact us as set forth in the section entitled “Privacy Policy Questions, Suggestions and Complaints” below and specify which right you intend to exercise. We will respond to your request within 30 days. We sometimes require additional information from you to allow us to confirm your identity. Please note that we store information as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, and continue to retain and use the information even after a data subject request for purposes of our legitimate interests, including as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, prevent fraud, and enforce our agreements.

If your information has been processed by us on behalf of one of our customers and you wish to exercise any rights you have with such information, please inquire with our customer directly. If you wish to make your request directly to Secured2, please provide the name of the Secured2 customer on whose behalf Secured2 processes your information. We will refer your request to that customer, and will support them to the extent required by applicable law in responding to your request.

If you have any issues with our compliance, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a European supervisory authority.

Data Controller

EU data protection law makes a distinction between organizations that process personal data for their own purposes (known as “controllers”) and organizations that process personal data on behalf of other organizations (known as “processors”). In limited circumstances, Secured2 (located at the address set forth in the section entitled “Purpose of this Policy” above) operates as a controller, such as in connection with data collected from non-subscribers who browse its Site and when Secured2 Services involves a direct to consumer relationship. However, Secured2 generally operates as a processor on behalf of its customers that use the Secured2 services. The customers are the data controllers and determine the purposes for which and the way personal data are to be processed by Secured2. Please visit the applicable customer’s privacy policy for information about their privacy practices. Any questions that you have relating to such personal data and your rights under data protection law should therefore be directed to the customer as the controller, not to Secured2.

Moreover, Secured2 has partnerships with resellers who offer Secured2 Services directly to consumers. The resellers are controllers of the personal data they collect while offering and selling Secured2 Services to consumers. Please direct any questions you may have regarding personal data collected or processed by resellers of Secured2 Services to the reseller, not to Secured2.

Lawful Basis for Processing

Data protection laws in Europe require a “lawful basis” for processing personal data. When we operate as a controller, our lawful bases include where: (a) you have given consent to the processing for one or more specific purposes; (b) processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you; (c) processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation; or (d) processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party, and your interests and fundamental rights and freedoms do not override those interests. Our legitimate interests include direct marketing and fraud prevention, among other things.

Privacy Shield

We are based in the U.S. and the information we collect is governed by U.S. law.  If you are accessing the Site or the Secured2 services from outside of the U.S., please be aware that information collected through the Site or the Secured2 services are transferred to, processed, stored, and used in the U.S. and other jurisdictions.
