This website takes every precaution to protect our usersí information.
When users submit sensitive information via the website, your 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 un-locked, or open, when you 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 re-gain access to your information. Furthermore,
ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
Every quarter, as well as 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 customersí information is protected.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can
send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and username.
