They may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but are never authorized to use it for other purposes.

Our website is hosted by Lunarpages and we work with them to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you enter. If at anytime you are concerned about security on a given page where you are entering personal or financial information, please look for the lock icon in the status bar at the bottom of your browser.
