In certain situations, Maximilian Ventures LLC may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Maximilian Ventures LLC's Security is Certified Daily by an Independent Third Party. Maximilian Ventures LLC has contracted with McAfee, a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation (NASDAQ: INTC). McAfee is the leading provider of Internet security auditing services. McAfee provides independent daily monitoring, testing, and certification of Maximilian Ventures LLC's web site and e-commerce security. Maximilian Ventures LLC is tested and certified daily to pass the FBI/SANS Internet Security Test. The "live" McAfee® Secure mark, shown on the right, appears only when a web site's security meets the highest security scanning standards of the U.S. government, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and JCB. The daily scanning and certification show that Maximilian Ventures LLC meets all payment card industry guidelines for remote web server vulnerability testing to help protect customer personal information from hackers. McAfee SECURE sites help keep you safe from identity theft, credit card fraud, spyware, spam, viruses and online scams.

Security with DigiCert® and Extended Validation SSL. Maximilian Ventures LLC has contracted with DigiCert, Inc., the premier provider of high-assurance digital certificates. With DigiCert, you are assured that you have secure communications with Maximilian Ventures LLC and not another site. Maximilian Ventures LLC uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer), the industry standard method for computers to communicate securely without risk of manipulation or recipient impersonation. Maximilian Ventures LLC utilizes this encryption during the online checkout process, including the acceptance of your credit card information, and the management of your account. The "Norton Secured" DigiCert mark, shown on the right, is only authorized for display when a business has passed DigiCert's rigorous identity authentication process and has been certified as a valid and trusted business. In addition, we have applied for and received from DigiCert an Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate, the highest degree of authentication available. The EV process requires more evaluation and documentation checks for applicants than those associated with other types of certificates. DigiCert has outlined the criteria that its applicants must meet to receive an EV SSL certificate.
