I am nervous to enter my personal information into an online system. Is my personal information safe?

  • Absolutely safe. Your data will be received by professionals at EMU who are qualified to handle confidential information.
  • Our website does require you to enter personal information including your social security number. But all information submitted is confidential, secure and cannot be viewed by any outside source. Our system provides a layer of security called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to protect your personal data when it is transmitted on the Internet. When SSL is in place, all data is encrypted as it is sent across the Internet. When data is encrypted, it cannot be read by someone monitoring Internet traffic. This is the same security used when you shop on the Internet or do online banking. When you are visiting a Web site that uses SSL, you will notice the URL in the address line begins with "https" instead of the standard "http". Our vendor also employs multi-level Cisco PIX firewalls to prevent external intrusions and ensure the security and integrity of client data.
