How do you protect my personal information?

We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt all information that you input before it is sent. In addition, we require the use of user names and passwords, where appropriate, and store data behind a secure firewall.

Will my personal information get "intercepted" when it is being sent to you over the web?

All personally identifiable information you send us while you are on our secure server is encrypted, meaning that it is transformed into unrecognizable characters until we decrypt it when it reaches us. All the data you send to us during a secure session is sent via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the industry-standard for sending encrypted information. You can tell if you are on our secure server in two ways: a key or closed lock will be visible in the lower portion of your browser, or "https" will appear in either the address portion of your browser or in the URL of a selected hyperlink. For greater protection of your data, we recommend that you use a web-browser that supports 128-bit encryption.

How safe is my personal information on your servers & network?

All incoming encrypted information is routed through our firewall, which serves as the gatekeeper for our system. Only data containing the correct authorization is permitted past the firewall. Attempts to pass the firewall are constantly monitored for suspicious activity.
