The Bill Pappas Golf School understands that the security of your personal information is important to you. We also understand that our continued success relies on our ability to offer services to you in a secure manner. To assist us in offering these services in a secure manner, we employ a number of measures, which are described below.

All email transmissions are considered as critical to our continued growth. To this end, we do not sell or trade any email addresses or other subscriber or client information.

Many of the services we provide on this web site utilize access codes (e.g. User-ID and password). To ensure additional protection for your accounts, The Bill Pappas Golf School strongly encourages that you change your user ID and password on at least a quarterly basis. To further protect you, a timeout feature is used. This feature will automatically log you out of your current service session after an extended period of inactivity on our site.

The Bill Pappas Golf School also requires the use of secure browsers to protect you while you access our financial services. More specifically, the personal and account information that flow back and forth between your PC and The Bill Pappas Golf School must be encrypted while in transit – secure browsers are how we achieve this level of protection. Encryption is the process of scrambling information (typically for data transmission) so that it can only be reassembled in its original clear text format by someone who has the correct encryption key. When used between you and The Bill Pappas Golf School, this technology encrypts your personal information as you send it to us,which only The Bill Pappas Golf School can decrypt. Likewise, when we send personal or account information to you, this technology encrypts it which then only you can decrypt. The browsers that The Bill Pappas Golf Schools' financial services utilize have been secured with 128-bit encryption.
