Message Boards, and Public Forums
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online – for example on message boards or through e-mail – that information can be collected and used by others. In short, by posting personal information online that is publicly accessible, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users’ personal information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and transmitted via a secure server. Our secure socket layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet.
InsuranceLicenseExpress.com also does everything in its 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, a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. On at least an annual basis, and any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure that our users’ information is protected.
Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment.
If users have questions about the security at InsuranceLicenseExpress.com, users can send an email toAcademicAdvisor@InsuranceLicenseExpress.com.
