At ScholarChip, we are committed to safeguarding your security. To guarantee that the information submitted on our website remains absolutely secure and confidential, we use industry-standard hardware and software in combination with authentication and certification by third parties.
ScholarChip employs Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to obtain user information securely. SSL an industry standard that works by using a private key to encrypt data. As part of an SSL data transmission, a third-party Certificate Authority authenticates the identity of the sending and receiving computer. This process prevents unauthorized users from intercepting data, and from sending false information about you.
As a second layer of protection, we utilize firewall technology. This is a system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network, such as our Web servers, when connected to the Internet. All data entering or leaving our network must pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet our specified security criteria. ScholarChip employs double firewalls for added protection of all data.
Additionally, we have taken precautions to store any information you submit to the database servers, separately from our Web servers. All of your sensitive information and financial data is encrypted so that in the unlikely event that someone gains unauthorized access to our website, it would not be possible to access your data.
