Information Safety

Protecting the safety of your information is important to us. The Healthcord Online Registration Form uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of your information as it is transmitted to us. SSL is the gold standard in Internet encryption technology. SSL is a method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our website’s servers. To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or Location line of your browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from “http” to “https.” If for any reason you cannot access the secure server, an order can also be placed by phone or by mail by downloading our mail-in order form. Our Customer Service representatives will be happy to assist you.
