While our survey data is primarily for use within Anchor Computer Inc. only, we may occasionally share the aggregate survey data with our development partners (e.g. web design, advertising and marketing agencies) in order to facilitate new product development.
Like most every web site, our Anchor Computer Inc. web site records certain tracing information anytime someone may visit our site.

E-Letter Website Security
The Anchor Computer Inc. web site uses secure sockets layer (SSL) to encrypt the transfer of sensitive information, such as your account password and payment information, from your web browser to our web server. The same SSL protocol also acts to authenticate the http://www.anchorcomputer.com site and prevent unauthorized “hackers” from masquerading as the Anchor site. This is accomplished through a “digital certificate”, which is an unforgeable electronic “identity card”. If another web site attempts to falsely identify itself as http://www.anchorcomputer.com, your web browser will display a warning indicating that there is a problem with the digital certificate for http://www.anchorcomputer.com. Do not log in to the Anchor site if you see any such warning.
Client Data Security
Anchor considers data security critical to our client’s business and our business. Anchor recommends that its clients take the following precautions when sending their files to minimize any data security risks.
- Use PGP encryption.
- Data fields that are not germane to Anchor’s processing and/or confidential data should not be included on the file provided to us. If this is not possible, Anchor recommends all confidential data fields not be defined in the layout, and encrypted if possible.
- Anchor recommends using strong passwords that are changed on a regular basis (every 90 days at a minimum).
- Anchor recommends that clients do not email their data. Email is not considered secure and must not be used to transmit client data.
- Anchor further recommends that clients FTP their files using Secure FTP.
- In the event these recommendations cannot be met, client accepts all liability for the security of their data.
Our Anchor data center is located in a highly secure facility guarded electronically 24 hours a day. We log the movement of all authorized visitors via badges and your data is located in a separately locked area within our secure facility. Our Anchor Computer Inc. data center computers communicate with each other using a private network behind a “firewall” that prevents any unauthorized access to our machines. Even with all this protection, Anchor Computer Inc. only stores credit card information for active orders on its servers in encrypted form, thereby adding yet another measure of protection for our customers.
How You Can Help Keep Your Information Secure?
The most important step you can take to keep your information secure is to keep your password secure. Do not give your password to other people and avoid choosing “easily guessed” passwords (e.g. any single word in the dictionary, proper names of people and places easily associated with you, etc.). Change your password immediately if you suspect someone has been accessing your account without your permission (click on the “Update Account” section of the Anchor web site after logging in).If for any reason you suspect a security violation has occurred, please immediately send an email to email@example.com with a description of the situation.
