Security

The HgO Group takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive

information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we

collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the webpage.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your

information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for

example, customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

The computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a

secure environment. This is all done to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure

or modification of the user's personal information under our control.

The company also uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for authentication and private

communications to build users' trust and confidence in the internet and website use by providing

simple and secure access and communication of credit card and personal information.
