MAINTAINING CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY
Our Web site supports versions of Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers that use 40-bit or 128-bit encryption.
Encryption is a means of scrambling information for transmission, in this case, between your PC and our computing systems. Information that is encrypted at one end is decrypted (decoded) upon receipt at the other end.
128-bit encryption is the
strongest, most secure form of encryption that is generally available
in Internet browsers on the market in North America today. Fiscal
Agents Financial Services Group requires that its customers use 128-bit
encryption when conducting financial transactions over the Internet.
We also recommend the use of 128-bit encryption for all non-financial
transactions, e.g. the completion of any application form or requested
statement of account.
40-bit encryption is the basic
minimum standard that is prevalent in most browser products. Your
browser probably uses 40-bit encryption unless you have specifically
obtained 128-bit encryption. It is widely used internationally and
is still endorsed by some banks around the world. If you wish, you
may select 40-bit encryption for conducting non-financial transactions
with Fiscal Agents Financial Services Group. The choice is yours.
The level of encryption you use depends on the browser you select. Here are your choices:
- 128-bit Netscape Navigator (version 2.0 or higher)
- 128-bit Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 or higher, for Windows 95 and above only)
- 40-bit Netscape Navigator (version 1.22 or higher)
- 40-bit Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 2.0 or higher)
