All data is submitted to Westcott using SSL Encryption. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a protocol allowing safe transmission of private information over the Internet. This protocol uses a cryptographic system that utilizes two keys to encrypt data: a public key known to everyone, and a private key known only to the message recipient. All modern browsers support SSL, and many websites use the protocol to obtain confidential user information like credit card data.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between our web server and your browser remains private and integral.
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 (like billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
