Privacy and Security
Your privacy and security is our priority.
At QwickRate, maintaining your privacy and security is extremely important to us. We are committed to protecting our customers and their data.
As a result, we have implemented sophisticated measures to provide appropriate web site security:
- Firewall technology is used to prevent unauthorized access from outside parties.
- Data is encrypted as it is transferred between the QwickRate web site and customer institutions. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), the Internet standard for encryption, is used to prevent sensitive data from being deciphered by unauthorized parties.
- User IDs (identification) and passwords are employed to restrict access. All users are required to provide a verifiable login and password along with approved IP addresses for service locations before access to the network is permitted.
- Users must match key identifiers to manipulate data. Random data confirmations are done periodically. In addition, the QwickRate software only decodes approved files at the user site.
- A Symantec Corporate License has been procured to provide protection for the network against viruses.
- Tape back up is performed daily to protect network data. Tapes are stored off-site to ensure safety and security.
While QwickRate is a secure network, we cannot control individuals who share their logon ids and passwords. We intend to research and investigate any abuse of our contractual confidentiality agreements and sharing of information.
