Security measures to protect your data
We have taken a variety of security measures to protect personal information to the extent that it is required and reasonable. We use Oracle Netsuite as a single database for all data, so there is no transfer between systems that potentially could prove vulnerable to hacking or interception of data.
Netsuite is a Safe Harbor Organization. As a US based corporation doing business globally we have a responsibility to provide the best security of personal data possible and Netsuite’s adherence to the EU-US Safe Harbor Privacy Shield Principles is key when it comes to the safe transfer of personal data between EU and US. It delivers big company security that would not normally be accessible to a company of our size.
Access to data is limited to authorized persons pursuant to this privacy statement. Only staff that are trained in matters of security and data processing processes and that require information to complete a special task (such as support or completing an order) have access to personal information.
Please note, that we can not guarantee complete data privacy when communicating via email.

All transmission of sensitive data to and from the Nektartech.com site (such as when you update your My Account information, buy something in our Shop, change passwords, address details and such-like) takes place within a secure, 2048-bit encrypted, environment. Your browser should display a locked/closed padlock icon in its status bar whenever Secure HTTP connections are being used. Where forms are used for you to submit data to the site, the locked padlock helps you identify such pages. PC users may verify the security of any web page by right-clicking on such pages and selecting "Properties" from the pop-up menu. The resulting window explains what level of encryption is being used on that page.
