While dance studio ownership is by no means easy, we’re confident that this eBook will present you with a greater chance at soaring beyond your competitors.
Your login, password, and all your information is encrypted using a minimum of 128 bit encryption and secure sockets layer version 3.0. These technologies prevent others from seeing any data that you enter into The Studio Director.
We continually evaluate and incorporate new technology, such as firewalls, virus checkers, encryption, intrusion detection, etc.
Your information is stored and carefully protected on our servers. We work very hard to ensure that no unauthorized access to your data is allowed and have partnered with Rackspace, a recognized leader in the global managed hosting market to manage and secure the web servers.
To further shield and protect your credit card and bank numbers, we do not store any of your credit card or bank numbers ourselves. We have partnered with large, respected merchant gateways. These merchant gateways specialize in keeping your credit card and bank account data secure. If you enter credit card information, that information will be stored on secure systems managed by one of our PCI compliant payment gateway partners.

With emerging compliance standards from different card brands, using these merchant gateways ensures that your payment information is securely stored using the newest data security compliance standards of the major card associations – including SAS, PCI, SDP, and CISP.
We continually monitor our servers for attacks, fraud, and break-in attempts.
Our website will time you out after 20 minutes of inactivity. This reduces the chances that someone could gain access from an unattended computer.
