How do we Protect your Personal Information?

At Atlas, your security and privacy are our upmost priority. Below, we have outlined some of the ways that we protect your personal information:

  • Computer virus protection helps to detect and prevent computer viruses from entering our computer network systems.
  • Firewalls help to block unauthorized access by individuals or networks.
  • Secure data transmissions help to ensure that information remains confidential. We use 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to transmit information to you and your bank.

What Can You Do to Protect your Personal Information?

You play a crucial role in the protection of your personal data. These tips should help you continue to keep your information secure.

  • Choose passwords that are difficult for others to guess. Don’t use personal information such as your birth date, address or pet’s name as a password. Keep your passwords for each account unique, and don’t write your passwords down in a place where others could find them.
  • Use antivirus and firewall software to protect your computer. Keep your operating system up to date and install the latest security patches. See the links below for more information on protecting your PC.
  • Remember that we will never ask for personal information such as passwords and account numbers through email.
  • Stay Alert! If you notice anything suspicious, please contact us immediately.
  • Check your credit report at least once a year to make sure there is no unauthorized activity. See below for information on obtaining a free credit report.
