What is the difference between security and privacy?
Privacy refers to the collection and use of your personal information, whereas website security is a system of safeguards that prevent unauthorized parties from reading or modifying information in secured areas.
What security measures does jemstep.com use?
Our site uses current Web server technology, which provides us with data encryption and authentication features. Certain communications between you and Jemstep.com are protected by a “Secure Sockets Layer” (SSL), which will let you know when the page you are viewing is secure.
SSL technology is used to establish a secure connection between your PC and the Web server. SSL allows all data transmitted between the server and your computer to be encrypted – even while traveling across multiple networks. The encryption is achieved through an electronic scrambling technology that uses “keys” to encrypt and decrypt data. The keys for each secure session are established and retired automatically by the SSL program; it is not necessary for you to learn to operate an encryption program. Jemstep uses SSL encryption that provides the maximum encryption key length allowed by your browser (up to 128 bits) when transmitting your information. The longer the key, the more secure the encrypted data. A 128-bit key is like a 16-character password.
Of course, no security system is completely foolproof, and no website can guarantee that it is impervious to security breaches. Be assured, however, that Jemstep takes security issues very seriously, and we strive to use the most up-to-date security measures possible.
