The Edge Group, LLC (Edge) has created this security statement in order to demonstrate our commitment to customer security. Security on Edge owned web sites is of great importance to us. Because we host sensitive information for our customers, we have established this Statement as a means to communicate our security practices. The Edge Group, LLC (Edge) utilizes some of the most advanced technology for Internet security available today. When you access our site using Netscape Navigator 6.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 5.5 or higher, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology protects your information using both server authentication and data encryption, ensuring that your data is safe, secure, and available only to registered Users in your organization. Your data will be completely inaccessible to your competitors. Edge provides each User in your organization with a unique user name and password that must be entered each time a User logs on. Edge issues a session "cookie" only to record encrypted authentication information for the duration of a specific session. The session "cookie" does not include either the username or password of the user. Edge does not use "cookies" to store other confidential user and session information, but instead implements more advanced security methods based on dynamic data and encoded session IDs. In addition, Edge is hosted in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders.
