Because of the nature of our business, our products and services are not designed to appeal to minors, and therefore we do not knowingly attempt to solicit or receive any information from children under 18.

X. Security Procedures to Protect Information
You should be aware that information sent to us using this Website may not be secure in transmission. However, if you access a Hightide extranet from this site, we use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) security technology to encrypt information you provide to us through the Site, but any information you provide to us outside of the extranet or for example 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. You can help to maintain the security of your online transactions by not sharing your password with anyone. If we receive instructions using your log-in information and password we will assume that the instructions have been authorized by you. Hightide 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.
Hightide may maintain customer information in both electronic and paper format at our company offices. All electronic information is processed and maintained in California, Arizona and Texas.
The location of our offices may change from time to time but are located in the United States.
