Your Security is Our Goal

The following describes the security measures we take to protect your information on the Internet:

We recommend periodically changing your password every 30-60 days. To change your password, sign on and go to the Manage My Account menu and select Update Account Profile. For additional security password tips view User ID and Password Guidelines.

128-Bit Encryption
We use Secured Socket Layer (SSL) for secure transmissions. SSL applies encryption between two communicating applications, such as your PC and our corporate Internet server. When your data is transmitted over the Internet, it is encrypted or "scrambled" at the sending end and then decrypted or "unscrambled" at the receiving end. We use 128-bit encryption, the highest level generally available today.
