We intend to protect the quality and integrity of your personally identifiable information. We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures, such as using encryption for transmission of credit card numbers and personal information, to help us keep your information secure, accurate, current, and complete.
When you browse public areas of aecsoftware.com, none of your personal information is captured or stored by AEC Software. However, when you conduct an online transaction with AEC Software, we offer the use of a secure server. Order and personal information are sent to us through a "secure session" established with the widely adopted Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is an industry standard technology that creates a secure environment for the information transferred between your browser and our site. Our online store uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Protocol for browsers that support 128-bit encryption (such as Netscape® Navigator version 4.0 or greater, or Microsoft® Internet Explorer version 4.0 or greater). SSL also encrypts information as it travels between your computer and our site so that your purchase information cannot be read as it travels over the Internet.
In general, you can tell if you are on a secure page by looking at the symbol at the bottom of your browser. If you're using Netscape Navigator, the symbol is a key. If you are using Internet Explorer, it's a lock. You can be sure you are using a secure server if the symbol is unbroken. Another way you can tell if your browser is in secure mode is by looking at the web site address that your browser displays. The address will begin "http://" in standard, non-secure mode and "https://" in secure mode. The "s" stands for "secure." Whenever you conduct a transaction with aecsoftware.com the address will always contain "https://" because we always use the SSL protocol to send information back and forth between our server and your computer for all of our transactions.
AEC Software stores information internally in a controlled, secure environment. All personal or payment information is gathered using our VeriSign Secure Server Certificate. No sensitive information such as credit card numbers will ever be transmitted via email.
The personal information that you provide in connection with becoming a registered member of the AEC Software website is protected in several ways. Access to your personal information is available through a password selected by you. This password is encrypted, and we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. Please note that any information you post to a public bulletin board or chat room, such as the AEC Software User Forums, is available to all persons accessing that portion of our site.
