Protection of Information

The HJI Populi site actively maintains security measures to protect your information and data from loss, destruction, misuse, unauthorized access, and disclosure. These measures help ensure the safety, security, and authorized access of your data. However, internet security is an ever-evolving and largely defensive enterprise, and so we therefore cannot guarantee the complete security of any Internet data transmissions or information storage technology.
