Protecting your information
The personal information that you provide to us is secured using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. We use this SSL technology to prevent such information from being intercepted and read as it is transmitted over the Internet. Your data is then stored on computers located at restricted-access sites.
To further secure your personal information, we require you to create a Personal Identification Number (PIN) when you establish an account with us. We encourage you to use a PIN that is not easily guessed (i.e., don't use your name or street name). Keep your PIN secret; do not share it with anyone. The only way that you can access the Bar Application is with your user name and PIN.
When you log in, the browser you are using may offer to remember your user name and password for this site. This will allow you to skip the log in each time you begin work on the application. However, it will also allow anyone who has access to this computer to see the information that you have entered. As a result, we strongly urge you to decline the browser's invitation to remember your user name and password.
To ensure the highest level of security, if you forget your user name or password, you will have to start over.
