Web Site Security

The information for the participant accounts is kept private and secure through multiple security features and procedures.

    • The information you request from our web site for your plan can only be accessed with your user name and password. It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential.
    • Do not disclose your password to anyone. Our employees will never ask you for your password.
    • Never write your password on something others may see.
    • Contact us immediately to change your password if you suspect someone has discovered it.
    • Information you submit through our web site, as well as the information we send back to you while you are visiting our web site, is protected while passing through the Internet using encryption (“scrambling” to make it incomprehensible).
    • The participant account information is not permanently stored on our web server. The information only resides on our web server while you are viewing the information. It is permanently stored on our secured corporate computer systems.
    • Our corporate network systems, which store your plan information, use industry standard security controls.
    • Our staff is dedicated to ensuring the security of the information we process and store.
    • Conrad Siegel has policies and procedures in place to limit access to your plan information to only those who have a business need to view it.
    • Always log off before surfing other web sites.

More About Security Software

To be sure your plan participant account information remains private and secure, we use proven security software to encrypt the information before it is transmitted through the Internet. If your browser is not compatible with our security software, the plan information will not be uploaded to the web site.

Our security software utilizes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption technology, the strongest currently available. SSL establishes a secure connection between us.

In addition to protecting communications between us, a firewall has been put in place. A firewall is a security measure that restricts access to our computer system servers that are not part of the Internet support system. We reinforce our firewall by monitoring for computer viruses, worms, and signs of attempted hacking.
