  1. PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION

MKC uses a secure server.

Once we receive it, all of the customer information we collect is protected against unauthorized access.

We do this by following these following steps:

  • Firewall - MKC systems are protected 24 hours a day by a powerful firewall that blocks unauthorized entry. In order to gain access to authorized information, the Web browser you are using must know the proper protocol, or language.
  • Encryption – While our entire web site is not encrypted, the transmittal of confidential data is encrypted. Confidential data is encrypted from the moment information leaves your computer to the time it enters our systems. We employ industry standard forms of encryption commercially available for use on the Web today.
  • Password protected- Your MKC account is password protected.
  • Employee access – We limit employee access to customer information to those who have a business reason to know this information.
