SITE USAGE AND INFORMATION SECURITY
Secure Transmission – Because the security of your Personal Information is important to us, this Site uses encryption software, either through Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) or a comparable product, to enable secure transmission of data by encrypting it. The URL in your browser will change to “HTTPS” instead of “HTTP” when this security feature is invoked. Your browser may also display a lock or key symbol on its task bar to indicate invoked secure transmission. If these indicators are not present, information may be susceptible to interception by other parties. Even with SSL protection, it remains important to protect against unauthorized use of your login profile and password by taking standard precautionary measures (logging off; protecting passwords; etc.). Most Internet e-mail communication is not considered secure. If you are communicating sensitive information, consider sending it in by postal mail or contacting University Place Hotel and Conference Center by phone. Please bear in mind that “guaranteed security” does not exist, whether on or off the Internet. Even so, we strive to take appropriate administrative, procedural and technical safeguarding measures to protect your Personal Information.
