AI/Bass may outsource or subcontract services like website hosting, credit card authorization (for example Authorize.net) and credit card settlement (for example Chase Paymentech). We rely on our third party providers to help ensure the safety and security of your information.

Protection of Customer Data
AI/Bass, on its own and through its third party providers, has implemented various measures designed to ensure the security and confidentiality of Customer Data and protect against anticipated threats to such information.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. We review and enhance our security systems as necessary.
