SECURITY

 
While no data transmission over the Internet or information storage technology can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, Onlinebuildings.com, Inc. (OLB) understands your concerns with the safety of your personal information. The following is a summary of the measures OLB takes to protect your information and descriptions of ways we implement these measures for different types of information you may provide to us.

 

SECURE WEB PAGES AND ENCRYPTION


OLB uses well-known and vetted security technologies to protect your data and transmissions between you, OLB, property management companies, building association board members and their agents, consumer reporting agencies and real estate professionals participating in the OLB Websites (please see the Terms of Use for additional information, definitions and terms that govern this Policy). Transmissions between OLB, property management companies, building association board members and their agents, consumer reporting agencies and real estate professionals are encrypted using public key cryptography algorithms with a minimum key size of 128 bits.

Those pages on the Websites that ask for your personal financial information are delivered to your browser through HTTPS, a secure server communications layer. Transmission between your browser and our web server, including when you send your personal and financial information to us, is implemented using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts it, making the information unreadable by anyone except OLB. SSL does not allow anyone to intercept and read your personal information; only we can decode the encryption. This technology requires any modern web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Opera. You can verify that your communications with OLB are secure by checking for the key or lock icon on your browser. If your browser’s security feature has been turned on, a pop up box will notify you when you enter a secure page.

Another important information security measure in place throughout the Websites is the timeout feature. This feature will log you out if there has been no activity within a specified amount of time.

 

FIREWALL PROTECTION


Firewalls are special purpose devices that protect and screen-out malicious attempts to access information and networks. OLB deploys firewalls at several points in its environment, including between you and the web server, the database servers, and OLB’s internal production networks.
