Internet Security

Return to main site

Effective Date: 03/15/2005

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

When our registration form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as customer code or regulatory identifiers), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our sign-in form or any customer services page, 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 ‘surfing’.

To learn more about SSL, follow this link: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/S/SSL.html .

You can verify the authenticity of our server’s security with Thawte by clicking on the image at the right:

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 users’ 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. If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to webadmin@olsonresearch.com.
