Net Security Statement
Money Management International, Inc. (herein “MMI”) takes the confidentiality of your information
very seriously. That is why we utilize SSL technology to encrypt your Information Statement.
SSL stands for "Secure Sockets Layer" protocol. It was developed by Netscape Communications
Corporation. SSL provides data security between application protocols such as HTTP (the protocol
used by the Web) and the networking protocol TCP/IP. SSL sits between the network I/O and the data
on your web server. SSL establishes a secure connection between the server and an SSL-capable browser
then encrypts and decrypts information as it is sent and received.
By encrypting messages, SSL can assure that transactions are private and that information has not been
altered during transmission. SSL can also authenticate the server to the browser by providing the
server's certificate to the browser. The browser must be capable of using the SSL protocol, including
verifying certificates and encrypting and decrypting messages. Web browsers, such as Internet Explorer
and Mozilla Firefox, support SSL. (the above text is from O'Reilly Web Site Professional
