Law and Harm

Steps We Take To Protect Your Information
We Encrypt Your Password
We encrypt your password in our database so nobody can ever read it in plain text, not even us.
When you enter your password during sign-up or the log in process, the plain text password you enter is hashed and salted. This is an irreversible, one way process. When you log in, instead of comparing two passwords together in plain text, we are actually comparing the hashed and salted (encrypted) password stored in our database with a hashed and salted version of what you enter in the login form.
This is why we cannot ever send your password to you. We don't know what it is! If you lose your password you will need to create a new one, because nobody (including us) will ever know what your original password was.
We Use SSL to Login to Swingpixie
When you login to Swingpixie it is done over SSL so if someone wanted to try to steal your login credentials when you login they wouldn't be able to sniff it over the network. SSL is the same technology your bank uses when you login to your their website.
Legalese and Indemnity
Please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other users with whom you share your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on Swingpixie will not become publicly available. We can't be responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on Swingpixie. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up to date antivirus software.
You should report any privacy and or security violations to us by emailing us at email@example.com
