We are enhancing the security of the Running Room on-line services. Starting today and over the next week you will see new security upgrades daily. These upgrades will not affect the performance of the site but serve to protect your information at a much higher level.
Connection Encrypted: High-grade Encryption (RC4 128 bit)
The Running Room online services have been upgraded to include even more security for our event registration, clinic registration systems, personal login and profile information. You will now notice SSL encryption on many of our online forms to further protect your privacy.
What is SSL?
Secure Sockets Layer, SSL, is the standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browser remains private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their on-line transactions with their customers. In order to be able to generate an SSL link, a web server requires an SSL Certificate.
The Running Room web server establishes an encrypted link between the website and our customer web browser.
Displaying the SSL Padlock
The complexities of the SSL protocol remain invisible to the customer. Instead their browser provides them with a key indicator to let them know they are currently protected by an SSL encrypted session.
Clicking on the Padlock displays our SSL Certificate and details.
The page you are viewing was encrypted before being transferred over the internet. Encryption makes it very difficult for unauthorized people to view information traveling between computers, in this case your browser and our server. It is therefore very unlikely that anyone can read this page as it traveled across the network.
Once you supply data (login information / registration information) you will get a warning that a secure page is linking to a non-secure page. This happens after every form submission so that the user is taken off of SSL and back to normal web browsing.
Do not be alarmed as this is normal process and all pages containing data (personal information) remain secure.
