How we protect your data


SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This secure link ensures that all data transferred remains private. It’s also called TLS (Transport Layer Security, TLSv2). Millions of websites use SSL encryption daily to secure connections and keep their customer’s data safe from monitoring and tampering. Additionally, our TLS/SSL site certificates are automatically rotated/renewed every 30 days to ensure privacy first when visiting our site.


Cloudflare DNS is DDoS protection for domain resolution. It sits behind the same 25 Tbps network that protects over 13 million Internet properties from attacks. Cloudflare constantly monitors the Internet for new vulnerabilities. When they find threats that apply to a large portion of users, they automatically apply WAF rules to protect their Internet properties. They track state-of-the-art hacking techniques so we can focus on what we do instead of protecting you from would-be attackers. Cloudflare’s Privacy Policies:


We authenticate and authorize our system users in conjunction with role-based access controls, and we continually audit these users to ensure proper access controls are maintained. We take our users’ security seriously by ensuring accounts are up-to-date, data is accurate, passwords are continually rotated, and 2fa is mandatory for all accounts.
