Our policies limit access to personal information that is collected from this website to our employees and agents, and business partners who need the information to fulfill their business responsibilities. We may disclose personal information collected online to our subsidiaries, affiliates and vendors who assist us with the development of our website.

Equinox employs appropriate measures, including the implementation and use of security technologies, to protect personal information collected online against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. These measures include HTTPS encryption, firewalls, physical and electronic access controls, and strict rules regarding the access and use of data on our systems.
While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur, we are committed to the security of your personal information through the use of appropriate safeguards and security audit procedures.
