SCRIP-SAFE® is serious about your security and privacy. Through our various web sites we provide information about us and our various products. We use information that we collect from you and your school to effectively provide our online services and to maximize your experience while using our services. Please be assured that we will not use your personally identifiable information for any service without your specific prior approval. This is uniformly true regardless of you role or relationship to SCRIP-SAFE®.
What information does SCRIP-SAFE® collect?
Like many Web sites we automatically track certain information about you as you use our site. This information may include, for example, your IP address, browser type and Internet connection speed. In addition, we may employ the use of “cookies” in certain areas of our site. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a Web server that may be stored on your computer’s hard drive. For the most part, the cookies we use would be “session cookies,” meaning they are automatically deleted at the end of the site visit. We also collect information you choose to provide us through the Web service or by email. When using the services offered on the site, SCRIP-SAFE® may collect information regarding such use including any communications made or transactions entered into by you or your designated staff as applicable.
Who is collecting your information?
When you provide information through the Site, the information is transmitted through the Internet and stored on servers owned and maintained by SCRIP-SAFE® International, Inc.
How do we use your information?
Any personally or institution identifying information that we collect is used to facilitate the provision of services that you may order. For schools, this may include posting the school’s name on the site as an institution that uses or accepts the use of SCRIP-SAFE® services.
With whom do we share your information?
Our business hinges on the trust you place in us. Beyond the normal and expected information exchange to operate within the eSCRIP-SAFE™ trusted network, we will not release any of your personally identifying information or institution identifying information to any third party without your consent. We will release your information if we believe that such action is appropriate to comply with any legal process,
We use sophisticated technology designed to protect your information and all transmissions made through our Site. Here are some of the highlights:
- The personal or institution identifying information that you provide us is stored in secured facilities with restricted access, and protected by protocols and procedures designed to ensure the physical security of such information. All individuals who have access to such information are trained in the maintenance and security of such information and we limit access of such information by our employees to the minimum information reasonably required in order to provide prompt, high quality services.
- All personal or institution identifying information that you enter on the site is encrypted by 128-bit secure sockets layer encryption protocols.
- Use of the service requires the user name and user-selected password assigned by you during registration. The use of a password ensures that access to your account is limited to you. In order to ensure the effectiveness of a password protection system, you must diligently maintain the confidentiality of your password. SCRIP-SAFE® is not responsible for any unauthorized access to and resulting use of your account accomplished through the use of your valid and current password.
Despite the most thorough of precautions, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be entirely secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our site, and you engage in such transmissions at your own risk. Once we receive a transmission from you, we will attempt to ensure its security on our systems and for any transmission of the information we may make as part of the Services.
