HOW SECURE IS YOUR INFORMATION?
The security of your personal information is very important to us. In an effort to protect your personal information, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology with 128-bit encryption. If your browser supports SSL (most current browsers do), it will automatically encrypt the information you provide to us on the secure pages on our site, before sending it over the Internet.
TotalBen LLC, has also obtained a digital certificate from GoDaddy, Inc., a leading provider of Internet trust services.
When visiting a page on our site that includes any of your personal information, the bottom of your browser window will display, an icon of a closed lock or an unbroken key (depending upon your browser). This indicates that you have successfully connected with our secure server.
To authenticate the security of your connection before submitting any of your personal information, you can double click on the icon to display our digital certificate.
Some browser versions and some firewalls do not permit communication through secure servers. In that case, we suggest that you contact your plan administrator.
We attempt to keep our systems secure and free from unauthorized access and use, by enforcing physical security at the premises in which the systems are located, and by using industry standard technological measures to prevent unauthorized remote access to the systems.
Unfortunately, no system on the Internet or any data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Despite our best efforts to keep our data transmissions to and from our server secure, we are unable to absolutely guarantee security and there will always be a risk of unauthorized access to your information. Although we will take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information that we hold about you, we will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorized access to such information.
