State of Text takes care to reinforce the importance of our web site visitors’ security and privacy among our employees. State of Text requires unique usernames and passwords that must be entered each time a user logs on to State of Text’s client interface. These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of all data.

State of Text is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any other web sites to which we link. We encourage our visitors to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that they visit.

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it.
