CapEd is always vigilant in protecting your financial information as well as your privacy.
CapEd makes every attempt to keep your information and privacy safe and secure Online. We use an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Certificate for identification and encryption purposes. This certificate is commonly noticeable in your web browser’s address bar by displaying a secured lock symbol as shown in the image below. You will also notice the address begins with “https” instead of “http” on any pages that ask for personal information.
Please note: Internet Explorer 11 is shown here. Other browsers such as Firefox or Safari may display the lock in a different area. “https” will always display in the address bar.
How does this help me?
This additional security measure prevents “phishing” attempts by informing you that you are at the correct Website.
If the secured lock symbol is not present when personal information is requested and the address does not begin with “https” followed by our web address (www.caped.com), leave the web site immediately and type our web address directly into the address bar.
Phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.
If you believe that you may be a victim of a “phishing” attempt, please contact us as soon as possible.
What about logging on to online banking?
SSL adds an additional layer of protection by encrypting your interaction with our web site to help prevent eavesdropping.
What about e-mail?
Email is not a secure method of communication and should never be used to send confidential or sensitive information such as Social Security Numbers or credit card numbers.
Does that include your online contact form?
Yes. Our online contact form sends messages to us via e-mail. Our online banking has a secure messaging system which you may use, should you need to send us sensitive information. Our Online Chat is also encrypted for secure messaging.
