Security

Internet Data Security

Now Commerce uses some of the most advanced technology for Internet security available. When you access Now Commerce services or website, 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 users that you have authorized and invited to view that data.

The nowcommerce.com website and Now Commerce web services have numerous security measures in place to help protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the data under our control. Now Commerce also implements an advanced security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications, and hosts the site and services in a secure server environment that uses latest firewall and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders.

Now Commerce provides each user with a unique user name and password that must be entered each time a user signs in. Now Commerce 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. Now Commerce 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.
