- Website and on-line security
Multicolour.com is secured using a 256-bit SSL Certificate. This ensures that in certain areas we use industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions via the World Wide Web. If any other internet user intercepts the communication he/she will only be able to see it in an encrypted (garbled) form. Certificate technology allows us to decrypt the information, and view it in plain text form.
To view certificate status click the logo on the right hand side. To learn more about Secure Sockets Layer ( SSL ), follow this link : www.openssl.org.
The most popular browsers offer the ability to receive an alert or notification if you change between secure and unsecured transmission modes, or if you receive an invalid site identification notice from a site to which you are about to send a message over an "open" or unsecured connection.
Check the settings of your browser security features to see all the options that are available and those that are currently selected. The presence of security measures surrounding the entry of data on a web page is identified in two ways on your browser:
The URL identifying the page will always begin with "https://" versus the normal "http://"
A security symbol to indicate operation in a mode that supports secure transmissions:
- Microsoft Internet Explorer displays a "closed lock" icon present in the bottom right-hand corner of your browser screen
- Netscape Navigator displays an "unbroken key" icon in the lower left-hand corner of your browser screen
The secure system requires a security-enabled browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer version 2.1 or higher, or Netscape Navigator version 2.0 or higher.
- Alternative Peace of Mind
In addition to your browser internet security features, Multicolour.com has incorporated its own series of measures designed to provide enhanced protection.
- Off-line Issue
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our user information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.
Furthermore, all employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers information is protected.
Finally, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
- Your Password
Choose a password that is at least six characters long. In general, a good password will have a mix of lower- and upper-case characters, numbers, and should be at least 6 characters long. Unfortunately, passwords like this are often hard to remember and result in people writing them down. Do not write your passwords down! Here are some of the types of passwords that will be picked up by crackers:
Words from any dictionary, Your user name, Your real name, Your spouse's name, Abbreviations, Asteroids, Biology, Cartoons, Character Patterns, Machine names, famous names, female names, Bible, male names, Movies, Myths-legends, Number Patterns, Short Phrases, Places, Science Fiction, Shakespeare, Songs, Sports, Surnames
