What security do you use to keep data secure?
Usernames and passwords
The data stored within our online service is private to each user and may only be accessed on successful entry of a username and password. As long as these details are kept confidential, nobody else will be able to access your account.
When you connect to and sign in to our online service, you'll be using 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. SSL is the technology that lies behind the yellow padlock that's displayed in the bottom right corner of Internet browsers. The use of SSL encryption means that no one can intercept and see the information being transferred between our customers and our online service.
We use Verisign Class 3 digital certificates on our online service. This means that our electronic identity and authority have been independently verified. When you connect to one of our secure sites, your web browser uses the Verisign digital certificate to set up the SSL encrypted communications with our site. You can view our Verisign certificate information by double clicking the yellow padlock in the bottom right corner of your browser.
We use firewalls to restrict access to the servers that host our websites. We also make use of Intrusion Detection and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IDS and IPS respectively) – these systems constantly monitor our systems for malicious or unwanted activity and can react to block or prevent those activities.
