Brokers Inc takes security very seriously and uses a security system which we believe to be one of the strongest available to protect your communications with us. Whenever you fill in a form, such as a request for a quote, it is automatically protected using software called a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) between your computer and the owners of Brokers Inc. SSL works in the following ways:
- It prevents impersonation – you can tell that you are using a genuine SSL site by the padlock symbol at the bottom of the screen. Clicking on the padlock will reveal our Registration Certificate that is issued by a third party.
- It encrypts data – as soon as your computer has recognised our computer they encrypt all information that is passed between them. Data encryption means that no one else can read or change your information as it travels over the Internet.
- It prevents scrambling – SSL uses a Message Authentication Code (MAC) to prevent anyone tampering with our Internet site. Your computer will always check this code before it takes a message from us. This means that if anyone tried to interfere with a message, your computer would not recognise the code and would alert you. The Internet cannot be guaranteed as being secure and accordingly we do not offer any warranties or assurances in this respect. Similarly, whilst we may communicate with you via e-mail, we cannot accept any liability for the security or transmission of such e-mail or internet-based communications.
