These companies and their employees are prohibited from using your personal data for any other purposes.

Compete Coaching International is committed to protecting the security of your personal data. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure.

When you move around a site to which you have logged in and/or providing information or from one site to another that uses the same login mechanism, we verify your identity by means of an encrypted cookie placed on your machine.

For sites to which you login, it is your responsibility to ensure the security of your password and not to reveal this information to others. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always logout before leaving a website so that subsequent users will not be able to access your data.
