We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both on and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (e.g.credit card data) it is encrypted and transmitted a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon in yourr web browser, or looking for "https" at the beginning of the web page address.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers where we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
HfS uses HTTPS for encrypted access to our website. The HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol over which data is sent between your browser and the website that you are connected to. The 'S' at the end of HTTPS stands for 'Secure'. It means with a HTTPS connection all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted. This means that even if somebody managed to break into the connection, they would not be able to decrypt any of the data which passes between you and the website.
