Data Security

Your personal information is one of your most valuable possessions. We recognize and appreciate the confidence you place in us when you entrust your personal data with MMI. That’s why it’s important you know how seriously we take data protection. We continuously review our protocols and industry standards in an effort to provide our clients and partners with the best data security presently available.

We encrypt your data with SSL technology

SSL stands for "Secure Sockets Layer" protocol. It 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.

Play your part in protecting your data

It only takes one minor slip to potentially compromise your personal data. Data security is a collective responsibility, and you need to make sure you’re playing your part to ensure your data stays protected.
