13. We use industry standard data security practices.
We use a combination of firewall barriers, encryption techniques, and authentication procedures, among others, to maintain the security of your online session and to protect myStrength.com accounts and systems from unauthorized access.
When you register for the Service, myStrength requires a password from you for your privacy and security. Information such as your Registration Information for myStrength.com is transferred securely by myStrength.
Our servers are in a secure facility. Access requires multiple levels of authentication, including biometrics recognition procedures. Security personnel monitor the system 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
Our databases are protected from general employee access both physically and logically. We encrypt your Service password so that your password cannot be recovered, even by us. All backup drives and tapes also are encrypted.
We enforce physical access controls to our buildings.
No employee may put any sensitive content on any insecure machine (i.e., nothing can be taken from the database and put on an insecure laptop).
myStrength has been verified by Verisign for its use of SSL encryption technologies and audited by TRUSTe for its privacy practices. In addition, myStrength tests the Site daily for any failure points that would allow hacking.
However, it is important to understand that these precautions apply only to our Site and systems. We exercise no control over how your information is stored, maintained, or displayed by third parties or on third-party sites.
