Recommendations and guidelines for using this site

Encrypted communications

Always verify that a closed lock icon is shown in the upper section of the page. This symbol will appear when you execute transactions in your account. Verify that the issuing organization is “Thawte”.

Identification

The system is accessed with a username and password that is unique to your account. Never provide anyone else with your username and/or password.  Additionally, it is recommended that you only login using your personal computer on a private network as public networks and computers are not secure.

Our customer support personnel will never ask you for your password and you should never give out your password to anyone under any circumstances.  If you receive correspondence asking for your password, notify the customer service department immediately.

We recommend that you do not write down your username and password, but if you do write it down you should save it in a different location from your computer, smartphone or tablet.

Passwords

Password Selection – Do not use common words for your password.  It is best if you use a random selection of letters, special characters and numbers, and the password should be a minimum of 8 characters long.

Password Replacement – If you ever believe that another person has gained access to your password you should change it immediately.  Otherwise you should routinely change your password every three months.

Ending a System Session

Always end your session and exit the system by clicking the logout button.
