11. Security

HDTS uses robust security measures to protect Customer Data from unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and help ensure the appropriate use of Customer Data. When the Services are accessed using Internet Explorer version 6.0 or later, Firefox version 2.0 or later, or Safari version 3.0 or later, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects Customer Data using both server authentication and data encryption. These technologies help ensure that Customer Data is safe, secure, and only available to the Customer to whom the information belongs and those to whom the Customer has granted access. HDTS also implements an advanced security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications, and the Company hosts its Web sites in a secure server environment that uses firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders. HDTS also offers enhanced security features ("Permission Settings") within the Services that permit privileged Customers ("Users") to configure security settings to the level they deem necessary. To configure Permission Settings, the User must be an Administrator ("Admin") or be granted specific permissions by an Admin. Customers are responsible for maintaining the security and confidentiality of their HDTS usernames and passwords. Password reset is offered on the login page. Because the Company uses the Services to maintain Data About HDTS Customers, this information is secured in the same manner as described above for Customer Data.

Although HDTS strives to have exemplary security in place in order to keep Your information safe, please be aware that no method of electronic storage can ever be 100% secure. Therefore as is the case with any organization; We are not in a position to guarantee the absolute security of Your information. You may submit any questions You may have about Our security procedures by emailing us at [email protected].

If the Company learns of a security systems breach, then We may attempt to notify You electronically so that You can take appropriate protective steps. We may also post a notice on the Site if a security breach occurs. Depending on where You live, You may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach You should notify us at [email protected].

What You Can Do To Protect Your Information.
(i) Use only secure websites when disclosing Your information. Secure pages begin with "https".

(ii) Avoid using easy to figure out access and personal ID (PIN) codes.

(iii) Never respond to unsolicited requests for Your social security number or financial information.

(iv) Do not disclose Your passwords to the Site or Your account information to any other person.

(v) Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

To check the security of Your connection, look at the lower left-hand corner of Your browser window after accessing the server. If You see an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on Your browser), then SSL is active and the server is secure. You can also double-check by looking at the URL (Universal Resource Locator) line of Your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https".

Some versions of browsers and some firewalls do not permit communication through secure servers. In that case, You will not be able to connect to that server.
