Security The security of personal information is important to Colu. Colu follows generally accepted industry standards, including the use of appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards, to protect the personal information submitted to it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while Colu strives to use reasonable commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, it cannot guarantee its absolute security or confidentiality. If you have any questions about security on the Service, you can contact Colu at privacy@Colu.co.

 

Merger, Sale or Bankruptcy. In the event that Colu is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, or in the event of bankruptcy or a comparable event, Colu reserves the right to transfer or assign personal information in connection with the foregoing events.
