How does ChooseHealthy.com ensure information is secure?

In order to maintain the confidentiality of personal information, ChooseHealthy.com enforces strict company-wide policies regarding privacy, security, and confidentiality.

ASH has an organizational commitment to protecting privacy and security.

ChooseHealthy.com uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the security of online order information. Users will see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on the browser used) in the lower left-hand corner of the browser window when SSL is active and the server is secure. The URL line of the browser will also contain "https" instead of "http". Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, users will not have the ability to connect to the server and therefore won't have the ability to place an order through an unsecure connection. Orders can be made over the phone by calling (877) 330-2746 if access to the secure server can not be accomplished.
