Why Is This Site So Secure

Browser versions

Our sites have been optimized to support the following browsers, all of which use recognized security protocols that are automatically activated when you log in.

Windows PC

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer: Version 6.0 and +
  • Firefox: Version 1.5 and +

Mac

  • Safari: Version 1.3.9 and +

What is a secure section?

The secure sections of our website use the SSL protocol. When confidential information such as your name, address or password is sent over the internet, the SSL protocol is used to make sure the information stays confidential and isn't altered in any way during transmission. Because the information is encrypted, it can't be read as it travels between your browser and our site. Firewalls are another security feature we offer. Information being sent over the Internet passes through a number of safety checkpoints between your computer and our systems. This prevents unauthorized access to our systems.

To benefit from the security offered by the SSL protocol, you need to use a 128-bit encryption browser, such as Internet Explorer versions 4.01 and up (for PCs) and 4.5 and up (for Macs). Please note that the Representative's virtual office (Webi) doesn't support Macs.
