V3 Secures Your Data
At V3, the privacy and security of consumer data is as important to us as it is to you. Physical safeguards, procedural controls and data access controls protect consumer data from unauthorized access. We continually monitor our systems to prevent unauthorized attempts at intrusion.
V3 uses strong encryption (Transport Layer Security or TLS) for transmitting private information via the Internet. TLS uses a private key to encrypt data that is transferred over the TLS connection. This protocol is a standard used by many websites when you submit confidential information, such as credit card numbers and other personal data. TLS creates a secure connection between your browser and our server. Addresses of web pages using a TLS connection start with https: instead of http: and most browsers also display an icon of a closed padlock when you visit a page using TLS.
V3ins.com and v3iconnect.com support the most popular, modern browsers and V3 strongly recommends keeping your browser up-to-date.
Supported browsers include the following:
|Google Chrome||latest public release and one prior release|
Many other browsers may also work with our site including browsers that are wholly compatible with these browsers and some older versions of these browsers. However, V3 does not design nor test for browsers other than those listed above. On mobile devices, v3ins.com and v3iconnect.com support Chrome and Safari on iOS and Chrome and Firefox on Android. V3 does not support developer or beta versions.
We use strong digital certificates so that you can feel safe conducting business with V3.
Other things you can do to enhance your security whenever you are online including the following:
- Use an Internet firewall (hardware or software).
- Use current software and operating system versions; get updates and security patches regularly.
- Use anti-virus software and download updates frequently.
- Use your own PC.
- Choose a hard-to-guess password (longer is better); change your password regularly; don’t reuse passwords across websites.
- Use the latest version of your browser.
- When finished, logoff the website and close your browser.
- For additional security, you can also clear your browser’s cache and temporary Internet files.
