Browsers and Internet Security
Any time you provide personal information in our Patient Services Center (such as mail and phone information or social security number), we encrypt it using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL protects information as it crosses the Internet. To support this technology, you need an SSL-capable browser. We recommend using a strong encryption, 128-bit browser found in recent version of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla and Opera . These browsers will activate SSL automatically whenever you interact with our secure patient forms.
How to Tell You are Visiting a Secure Website Page
You can tell if you are visiting a secure area within a Web site by looking at the symbol on the bottom of your browser screen. You will see either a lock or a key. When the symbol appears unbroken or the padlock is in the locked position, your session connection is taking place via a secure server. You may even be greeted with a pop-up message saying, “You have requested an encrypted page. The web site has identified itself correctly, and information you see or enter on this page can’t easily be read by a third party.”
It’s always best to keep your website browser up to date. We do not recommend the use of beta browser versions.
