DuBois takes appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction of your data that we collect and store.

Your password is an essential part of our security system, and it is your responsibility to protect it. You should not share your password with any third party, and if you believe your password or account has been compromised, you should change it immediately and contact support@DuBoiscsc.com with any concerns.
