While no data transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, AboutSETI.com understands your concerns with the safety of your personal information. The following is a summary of the measures AboutSETI.com takes to protect your information and descriptions of ways we implement these measures for different types of information you may provide to us.
SECURE WEB PAGES AND ENCRYPTION
For those pages on the Websites that ask for your personal financial information, those pages are delivered to your browser through HTTPS, a secure server communications layer. Transmission between your browser and our web server when you send your personal financial information to us is implemented using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts it, making the information unreadable by anyone except AboutSETI.com. SSL does not allow anyone to intercept and read your personal financial information; only we can decode the encryption. This technology requires any modern web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Opera. You can verify that your communication of personal financial information with AboutSETI.com is secure by checking for the key or lock icon on your browser. If your browser’s security feature has been turned on, a pop up box will notify you when you enter a secure page.
Firewalls are special purpose devices that protect and screen-out malicious attempts to access information and networks. AboutSETI.com deploys firewalls at several points in its environment, including between you and the webserver, the database servers, and AboutSETI.com’s internal production networks.
