Privacy & Security

We have an integrated system of industry best practices and technologically advanced safeguards that includes:

  • SSL and encryption
  • Firewall
  • Monitoring
  • Automatic logout

 

SSL and encryption

We use an industry-standard technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) on our account services websites to encrypt the information flowing between your computer and our servers. Encryption works by scrambling words and numbers before they travel across the Internet so they can't be read or altered.

 

Firewall

A firewall is a combination of hardware and software deployed to control the information that can pass from the Internet into our internal systems and servers. Firewalls enforce a set of rules intended to bar intruders and viruses from gaining entry.

 

Monitoring

We continually monitor our systems for evidence of attempted break-ins. Our monitoring methods combine internal resources and security companies we pay to help safeguard your information.

 

Automatic logout

The automatic logout is intended to protect your account information from passersby if you're interrupted and leave your computer before logging out. Typically, you'll be automatically logged out 20 minutes after your last click in a secure session.
