    1. 7.      Action Taken to Protect Personal Information

    Personal information is being encrypted.

    Passwords, unique identifiable information, account numbers, and credit card numbers are encrypted for storage as required by law. Email addresses and mobile phone numbers are also encrypted and stored.

    Foot Locker has implemented specific security measures for the protection against loss, abuse or the adjustment of information provided by you. All personal data, including credit card numbers sent over the Internet are encrypted with the use of SSL (Secure Socket Layer), Secure Server Certification Authority RSA Data Security Inc. US and a VeriSign SSL, by which transactions performed via the internet are secured. VeriSign, Inc. is a leading provider of Public Key Infrastructure and digital certification solutions used by many companies, websites and consumers to exchange information over the internet and private networks in a safe manner.

    The browsers that support placing orders with the use of SSL /TLS Technology include Google Chrome 51 and higher; Microsoft Internet Explorer 11 and higher; Mozilla Firefox 47 client for PCs; and the Safari 9.1 client for Macs; Mobile Safari and Google Chrome for mobile. If you use an older version of these browsers or another browser which does not support the performance of secured transactions or if your computer forms part of a LAN (local area network) on which a firewall is installed which prevents the performance of secured transactions, you cannot perform secured transactions. If this is the case, we kindly ask that you choose one of the offline methods of payment to place your order.

    If you make use of our website, you are responsible for keeping your profile and password confidential and for limiting access to your computer to prevent the unauthorized access to your profile. You accept that you are responsible for all the activities that take place in your profile or with the use of your password.

    Personal information is safely protected from internal and external security threats.

    To prevent user’s personal information from being leaked or damaged through acts of hacking or computer viruses, the system of FOOT LOCKER is installed in controlled areas that cannot be accessed externally. Personal information is backed-up on a regular basis as preemptive measures against potential damage to personal information, while the latest vaccine programs are used to prevent such leakage or damage. Encoded communication is also used to transfer personal information safely via networks.

    Foot Locker has implemented the appropriate physical, administrative, and technical security measures to protect against unlawful access, loss, misuse or alteration of the information you provide. When we collect data through the site, we encrypt your personal information, including your credit card number, when transmitting over the Internet using encryption technology Secure Socket Layer (SSL) coding, to safeguard your Internet transactions. You are strongly recommended not to send full credit or debit card details in unencrypted electronic communications with us. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of your information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you. You are responsible for protecting against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer.

    Employees that handle personal information are kept to a minimum.

    Employees that handle personal information kept to a minimum and the work PCs of employees permitted to view personal information from the personal information processing system do so only via a secure connection and via approved devices, reducing the leakage risk of personal information. FOOT LOCKER continuously stresses that protecting personal information is its utmost priority by training employees who handle personal information on a regular basis while also frequently holding training sessions and campaigns for the entire FOOT LOCKER staff.
