Confidentiality, security, and integrity.

Physical Security

INTECH applies industry best-security practices to ensure that all information transmitted is safe and secure. Information is stored on a secure recordkeeping system that is located in secured areas of the buildings we occupy.

All recordkeeping systems are located in a controlled area, with physical access limited to authorized persons. Authorized personnel escort visitors into controlled areas at all times. Employees of INTECH may, from time to time, have access to this information to fulfill our service commitment to you. However, physical access to the controlled areas is logged and each employee, upon employment with INTECH, is required to sign a security agreement concerning their individual duty to safeguard confidential data.

What is SSL?

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It's a technology developed by Netscape and adopted by all vendors producing web-related software. It's used to establish a secure connection between your PC and Janus' server. SSL allows you to transmit information in an encrypted manner, so all data transmitted between INTECH and your computer will be completely encrypted even while traveling across multiple networks. Encryption is achieved through an electronic scrambling technology (developed by RSA, Inc.) that uses keys to code and decode data. Basically, each party has a private "key" that no one can access, and a public "key" that can be passed back and forth. Information encrypted with a public key can only be decrypted with the associated private key. In other words, the information you send to INTECH is encrypted using our public key. It can only be decrypted by us with our private key. The same goes for the information we send to your computer - we'll encrypt it using your public key, but only you can decrypt it using the private key that you alone hold. To further enhance security, these keys are established at the beginning of your secure session with INTECH and are used for that session only.

Encryption and Online Security

When we talk about 40-bit encryption or 128-bit encryption, we're referring to the length of the "keys" used to encrypt and decrypt data. The longer the key, the more secure the encrypted data. You could think of the key as a password, without which you cannot decode a message. Basically, a 128-bit key is like a 16-character password (and virtually impossible to decode). 40-bit encryption uses keys that are only five characters long.

To get the highest level of security, use a browser that supports a 128-bit encryption. Versions of Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Explorer that support 128-bit encryption are available for download, free of charge.

Browser Security

To establish a secure session with our site, your browser must be SSL compliant. You'll need a web browser such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer that supports at least 40-bit encryption. Many other browsers will support encryption, but they may not provide the highest level of security available. To take full advantage of our site's security features, we strongly recommend upgrading to a browser that supports 128-bit encryption.


INTECH may assign your computer browser a unique random identifier called a "cookie." Doing so does not compromise your privacy or security in any way. We will simply use the data collected by the cookie to improve your web experience and to evaluate the site's services and features.

Policy Revisions

INTECH reserves the right to amend its policies at any time. Changes to the Privacy Policy will become effective upon posting to this site. You should review this Privacy Policy periodically to remain informed of any updates. However, if we decide to disclose personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will promptly notify you by U.S. mail or e-mail, as applicable. You will be given the choice at that time to "opt-out" of any disclosures of your personal information that you made available to us prior to the change in our policy. Minor revisions to these policies not affecting the manner in which your information is shared may be made without notice.
