Security precautions in place to protect your information

When you give us personal information, we have taken the necessary steps to ensure that it’s treated securely which is why we have our website encrypted & protected with a SSL certificate. When you are on a secure page, a padlock key icon will be displayed on the web browser.

How does SSL work?
SSL works by the sharing of encrypted keys, or passwords. The keys are created in pairs, one a public key and one a private key. When the keys are traded in a particular manner between two parties, this protocol assures the parties in communication they are transmitting with one another and not a hacker or phisher. It also assures the data being transmitted is not intercepted by someone else.
