How We Protect and Use Your Personal Information
To protect your personal and credit card information from unauthorized access, all information exchanged between our servers and your Web browser is encrypted using authorize.net. In addition all of our employees are made aware of our Confidentiality of Client Information Policy on a regular basis and must acknowledge that they have received and read the same. We also secure the infrastructure that supports information collection, exchange, and storage/retrieval at the following levels. We use firewalls to secure the perimeter of our information network and monitor our systems on a regular basis. We also use an authentication and authorization mechanism based on user i.d. and password to restrict access to your personal information. Each authenticated user only has access to the information that he or she is authorized to use.
