3. DATA SECURITY
All financial transactions through the Site are protected by Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”), a physical, electronic, and administrative procedure. SSL encryption is used to protect your personal information online, as well as several measures in our facilities to protect it. The use of your personal information is restricted. Personnel with access to your personal information are only permitted if they need to use it for a specific purpose. As a final precaution, we entrust some of our computer hardware to third parties for physical security. Our assessment of their security procedures is that they are adequate. The Site, for example, has servers that are located behind a locked cage and an electronic firewall in a secure physical environment.
The security of your personal information is protected using industry-standard precautions, but we cannot guarantee infallible protection. Currently, there is no Internet security solution that provides 100% complete security anywhere.
