Security Top

The security of EDULINX On–Line Services depends both on EDULINX and you, the user.


EDULINX will take all necessary measures to ensure that your electronic information changes with us are secure and that your privacy is protected.

EDULINX On–Line Services use 128–bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect your information. Encryption electronically scrambles the data stream between your computer and our server. This minimizes the risk that Internet hackers and other users will alter or view information being transmitted. You must be using a browser with 128-bit encryption in order to access this site. 128–bit SSL encryption is one of the most secure forms of encryption available in North America.

While every possible effort has been made to ensure the safety and integrity of EDULINX On–Line Services information changes, the Internet exists as a public network and therefore is outside of the control of EDULINX.
