How We Safeguard Information
ABCs realizes the importance of security, so we've taken a number of steps to enhance the protection of information sent to or from ABCs over the Internet. First, we require that a "secure session" be established, using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This is done any time you supply or access information in one of our secure online areas.
SSL technology creates a private conversation that only your computer and ABCs systems can understand. The SSL technology encodes information as it is being sent over the Internet between your computer and ABCs systems, helping to ensure that the transmitted information remains confidential.
No guarantee -- Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, and despite our efforts, ABCs cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
