Protecting Information
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information. Our operational and data processing systems are contained in a secure environment and that environment is access-controlled.

To secure sensitive communications between your computer and our web servers, we have implemented Versign digital certificates and enabled strong, RSA1024-bit, encryption. We use secure sockets layer, SSL, security protocol to protect all exchanges of information via our web pages that are considered private or confidential.

We use various authentication technologies, including passwords, to authenticate visitors to the portions of our website that may allow access to private or confidential information. We have implemented other security controls such as firewalls, intrusion detection and intrusion prevention to protect our systems and networks and your information. Our security systems constantly monitor the web server to ensure your accounts are safe and secure.

You may be aware that Web pages with “https” addresses indicate online security. The login areas of our site are secure even when appearing on a page with an “http” address. Before the information leaves your computer, it is transferred safely to the secure area of our Web site.

Email messages are not secure. We are not responsible for the security or confidentiality of communications sent to us via Internet email messages. Our security software does not encrypt email messages. Email messages traveling through the Internet are potentially subject to viewing, alteration and copying by anyone on the Internet. Be cautious when submitting personal or financial information via email. Send confidential information through the postal service or use the telephone to speak directly to our employees.

Internet Fraud
Whirlwind wants to protect clients by warning them about a growing form of Internet fraud called “phishing.” Fake email messages are disguised to look like requests from real businesses. These emails request private information. The information is then used to access financial records and steal identities.

You should not respond to emails from Whirlwind that request validation of personal information or link to Web sites requesting validation of personal information.

Those receiving suspicious emails that appear to be from Whirlwind should immediately contact the Whirlwind Customer Service Center at 1-888-344-3836.
