Money Management International takes the confidentiality of your information very seriously. That is why we utilize SSL technology to encrypt your Information Statement.
SSL stands for "Secure Sockets Layer" protocol. It was developed by Netscape Communications Corporation. SSL provides data security between application protocols such as HTTP (the protocol used by the Web) and the networking protocol TCP/IP. SSL sits between the network I/O and the data on your web server. SSL establishes a secure connection between the server and an SSL-capable browser then encrypts and decrypts information as it is sent and received.
By encrypting messages, SSL can assure that transactions are private and that information has not been altered during transmission. SSL can also authenticate the server to the browser by providing the server's certificate to the browser. The browser must be capable of using the SSL protocol, including verifying certificates and encrypting and decrypting messages. Several browsers, such as Spyglass Mosaic, Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator, support SSL. (the above text is from O'reilly Web Site Professional Advanced Topics)
Be attentive to the following situations to ensure your confidentiality is not compromised on your end. Your privacy might be compromised:
- if someone else has access to your computer, and is able to read email or files stored on your disk
- if you print email to/from MMI on paper, and someone finds the paper
- if you use a workplace computer - your employer has a legal right to read your email on that machine
- if you accidentally make a mistake on the email address and send it to someone other than your MMI consultant
- if someone obtains the password to your email account
- if you talk about it to someone
Most people are perfectly satisfied with the safety of SSL technology. However, you are the only one who can determine your level of comfort - so if it isn't in your comfort zone, mail or fax your information to us at 888.845.0501.
