When you submit your privat information or place an order through our ordering system, your personal information is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, the industry standard security protocol for encoding sensitive information. SSL creates a shared digital key, which only lets the sender and the receiver of the transmission scramble or unscramble information. To everyone else, the SSL transmission is indecipherable. Encryption is based on the mathematical scrambling and unscrambling of messages.
The type of encryption we use assigns two keys – one is a public key and one is a private key. When you send us a message, you use our public key to encrypt your message. Once we receive your encrypted message, we use the private key to decode it. The same key cannot both encrypt and decrypt information. So, information encrypted using the private key can only be decrypted using the public key, and vice versa- ensuring the security of your information.
This technology, together with our other security measures, protects your personal information as it moves from your computer to our server. We also restrict and limit access to customer information only to those employees who require it to carry out their business functions, and educate our employees about safeguarding customer information and preventing its unauthorized access, disclosure, or use. We constantly monitor and adopt, as appropriate, new technological improvements designed to protect and ensure the accuracy and security of customer information.
In today’s world, for better or worse, security issues are at the forefront of our thoughts. ColoGuard’s Turbo SSL is just one solution from ColoGuard that should give online consumers and businesses peace of mind. Sites secured by QuickSSL are utilizing 128-bit SSL certificates thereby offering the highest level of encryption or security possible. This means you can rest assured that communications between your browser and this site’s web servers are private and secure.
At ColoGuard, your sensitive information is password protected, adding to the level of security offered by SSL technology. (See Secure Socket Layer for more information).
