Privacy & Security Notice

Security: Watching It Work
It is our intent to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you. While no data storage or transmission can ever be totally secure, we use a variety of current technologies and processes for protection of your data.
The most popular web browsers use clear visual symbols to let you know whether or not they are in secure mode. The symbols are displayed either at the bottom left or bottom right of your browser window and resemble a closed lock.

Another indication that a browser is in secure mode can be found in the website address displayed by your browser. The address will begin “http://” in standard, non-secure mode and “https://” in secure mode. The “s” stands for “secure.”
