    Site Security
    Security is a top priority on the Mt Buller Condominiums website.

    To safeguard your personal information, our systems are equipped with multiple security precautions throughout the booking process, and long after you've completed your transaction.

    Our systems are protected by firewalls that act as shields to our computer networks. Within those systems, sensitive information is encrypted (a sophisticated way of scrambling information so it cannot be decoded) to protect your personal data, like credit card numbers.

    Our webhost's security team continually monitors our systems 24-hours-a-day. In addition, our servers are housed in a secured facility with very strict access controls.

    Our secure server software encrypts all of your personal information, including any credit card information.

    The process of encryption takes the information you enter and converts it into bits of code that are securely transmitted over the Internet.

    This scrambled data cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet.

    Once your encrypted personal information is received by our secure server, it is translated back into its original form and stored in our off-line database. Your credit card information is not transmitted over the Internet again.

    We offer the the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) method for you to place your reservations and to view your order history in our Account area, so your personal details, such as credit card numbers & address, are encrypted before sending them to us, using a 128-bit key. This technology works with Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and Firefox. Hence, only your browser and our server are able to read the details you type.

    Our SSL has been verified by GeoTrust - click the padlock on the bottom of your browser window when you are in the checkout or Member Area to see our security certificate details.

We collect session data because it helps us analyze such things as what items visitors are likely to click on most, the way visitors are clicking through the site, how many visitors are surfing to various pages on the site, how long visitors to the site are staying and how often they are visiting. It also helps us diagnose problems with our servers and lets us better administer our systems. Although such information does not identify any visitor personally, it is possible to determine from an IP address a visitor's Internet Service Provider (ISP) and the approximate geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.
