Website policy – Security

The Company has obtained an SSL certificate from GoDaddy, which may be changed at the Company’s discretion.  An SSL certificate is a digital certificate that authenticates the identity of a website and encrypts information sent to the server using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology.  Encryption is the process of scrambling data into an undecipherable format that can only be returned to a readable format with the proper decryption key. Our web site has the aforementioned security measure in place but we cannot guarantee that such security measure will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining information.
