Security of information

FleetPartners takes reasonable steps to preserve the security of cookie and personal information in accordance with the FleetPartners Website Terms of Use and this Security and Privacy Statement. If your browser is suitably configured, it will advise you whether the information you are sending us will be secure (encrypted) or insecure (unencrypted).

Accordingly, although FleetPartners strives to protect such information, FleetPartners cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we take reasonable steps to preserve the security of the information in our own systems.
