Security

Our website’s e-commerce system uses SSL encryption to protect sensitive data transmissions from your computer to our website. You are able to see when the SSL encryption is active either by the “padlock” icon at the bottom of your browser’s window or by a blue line around the window. In certain areas, password protection is used to protect your privacy and security.

This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.

When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and other sensitive information), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to va@virtualaccuracy.com

If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email.

We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
