Security Procedures to Protect Information
Security of personal information is extremely important to us. Carnival employs security measures consistent with standard industry practice to prevent unauthorized access to your personal information collected on and used by Carnival at this site. Our site uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security technology to encrypt information you provide to us through the Site, but any information you provide us by email is unencrypted. SSL is an industry-standard protocol for encryption over the internet. Data transmission over the internet is never 100% secure.
While we take steps to protect your personal information and keep it secure, you also play a role in protecting your information. Carnival cannot guaranty the security of any information you transmit to us or from our site, and therefore you use our site at your own risk.
