Security

This Web site takes every precaution to protect our usersí information.When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.

 

When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL.While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when users are just Ďsurfingí.

 

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line.All of our usersí information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk.When they return, they must re-enter their password to regain access to user information.Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.Any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our usersí information is protected.Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment, in a locked facility.
