Is Little Crickets Day Care a Secure Site?
As a company that does have online website, we understand the importance of security. That’s why we have a number of highly secure systems in place to give you confidence when you give us personal information, such as your personal details, address or telephone number.
We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt your details whilst they travel from your computer to our system. This ensures your personal details are kept private except where we have advised you otherwise in our terms and conditions.
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client-typically a web server (website) and a browser; or a mail server and a mail client (e.g., Outlook).
SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely.
We store your personal details on a secure encrypted server that is not accessible via the internet.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
