SECURITY

Ursuline Academy takes every reasonable precaution to protect our users’ information. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before creating your user account. The user that created the account for a user is responsible for maintaining the secrecy of such user’s unique password and account information at all times.

When you submit sensitive information via the Site, your information is protected both online and off-line. For your security, our Transaction processing vendor encrypts sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our order forms using secure socket layer technology (“SSL”). In order for SSL to work, though, you must have a browser that supports SSL technology. While on a secure page, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers, such as Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just ‘surfing’. To learn about SSL, follow this link: http://www.webopedia.com/DidYouKnow/Internet/2005/ssl.asp.

It should be noted that emails and other Collected Information you send to us, except that which you send us on a secure page, is not encrypted and such transmissions cannot be considered a secure means of transmitting sensitive information. Ursuline Academy will never ask you to submit your Financial Information via email. IF YOU RECEIVE AN EMAIL REQUESTING THAT YOU FORWARD INFORMATION OF THIS NATURE BY EMAIL, PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECTLY. DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THE EMAIL.

You should be aware of the limitations of security, authentication, encryption, and privacy measures used in connection with the internet and that any information you transmit through the Site may be damaged, corrupted, “sniffed” and/or accessed by another person without your permission. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT TRANSMISSIONS ON THE INTERNET ARE NOT ALWAYS CONFIDENTIAL. YOU ARE TRANSMITTING YOUR COLLECTED AND FINANCIAL INFORMATION TO URSULINE ACADEMY AT YOUR OWN RISK. Regardless of the precautions taken by you or by us, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet. We cannot ensure or warrant the ultimate security of any information you transmit.

We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and recommend that they read the privacy statements of each and every website they visit.
