How is my password a good way of ensuring security?

Using your password is the best way we can identify you and control access to your personal file. Looking after it is essential to maximizing your security!

Here are a few tips to help you ensure that your password will allow you to browse the site safely:

  • Never share your password with anyone;
  • Change your password regularly (at least twice a year) to reduce the risk of anyone else hacking it;
  • Never use your user ID as your password.

We strongly recommend NOT TO WRITE your password down. However, if you do decide to make a note of it, try to do it in such a way that only you can decipher it. You should never save passwords on your computer.

Is transferring data secure?

To ensure that data is exchanged as securely as possible over the Internet, we use 128-bit encryption, which is the newest and most secure technology currently available. The encryption system we use transforms the data sent into coded language, which is practically impossible to decipher.

Here are two ways you can ensure a secure on-line browsing environment:

  1. Check that your browser's security icon is present. Depending on your browser, you should see a small key or closed padlock that tells you your Internet link is secure. A broken key or open padlock means that your link is not secure.


  2. Check to see that the address in your browser's address window starts with "https". If it does, the connection is secure. Otherwise, the address will start with "http".

To ensure that the highest level of security is always maintained, we recommend that you log off from the system and disconnect from the Internet before leaving your computer, so that nobody else can gain access to your user ID and/or password.
