Security Policy

Your Security Online
One of our highest priorities is to ensure your privacy and peace of mind by employing industry standard security measures. Once you register, you will be able to use a self-selected Login Name/Password to access the system in the future. All data transmitted between your computer and our secure site is encrypted using 128 bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) supported by all modern browsers; this is a security protocol that encodes data before it is transmitted over the Internet. While most browsers offer both 128-bit and 256-bit versions of SSL, our website utilizes 128-bit encryption. An icon, such as a lock or key, will be displayed in the corner of your browser's window to let you know that your browser's encryption is active.
