How You Can Protect Yourself

Protect Yourself from Fradulent Websites and Phishing

Personal information shared over the Internet can be used to commit fraud. One common method is for thieves to create a web site using a name that is similar to that of a reputable business, for instance by using a common misspelling of the company's name. The intent is to lure you into clicking onto the copycat web site and giving your personal information, including your account number and password. We caution you to make sure of whom you are dealing with over the Internet and to understand what will be done with your information. Always check that you have typed the correct web site address before entering personal information onto a site.

Phishing is a type of online fraud where you are tricked into providing your personal information through your computer. By posing as individuals or organizations you know, trust and maybe have relationships with, "phishers" seek to obtain your computer passwords, credit card numbers or bank account information so they can use them fraudulently.

Clearing Your Internet Browser's Cache and History

To ensure your privacy, we recommend that you clear the Internet browser's cache and history after visiting any Links Unlimited web site. Internet browsing software, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape, stores or "caches" content of web sites visited during online sessions to display pages previously viewed more quickly. Additionally, the Internet browser's history list tracks web site addresses you visit. Clearing your browser's cache and history ensures that other people using the computer (particularly public computers) do not have access to your session information.

Internet Security Measures

Any sensitive personal information that you send through Links Unlimited to our web site is held in a secured environment, protected by tools such as firewalls and/or database field encryption.
