Privacy & Security
PaulLabrecque.com realizes how important security is
to you, so we've taken a number of steps to enhance the protection of
personal or confidential
provided to or from The PaulLabrecque.com over
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Technology: We require
that a "secure session" be established using Secure Sockets Layer
(SSL) technology. This is done anytime
you supply or access personal or confidential
in one of our secure online areas.
SSL technology creates a private conversation that only the computer
you are using and The PaulLabrecque.com systems can understand. The SSL technology
as it is being sent over the Internet between your computer and The PaulLabrecque.comsystems,
helping to ensure that the transmitted
The use of SSL requires two components: an SSL-compatible browser and
a secure web server to perform the "key-exchange"
that establishes a secure connection to The PaulLabrecque.com server
SSL Technology Requirements: The technological requirements needed to benefit
from SSL technology includeNetscape
2.0 and newer, Microsoft's Internet Explorer 2.0 and newer, and the web
browser for America Online version 3.0 for Windows and newer. (Note
that some older browsers will not support SSL sessions). In order to
securely access your personal or confidential
via the Internet, we recommend you use the newest browser versions available.
If you don't already have a browser with SSL capabilities, you can download
an SSL-compliant browser from the links below
AOL - www.aol.com
Microsoft Internet Explorer - www.Microsoft.com/windows/ie/default.asp
Netscape Navigator - channels.netscape.com/ns/browsers/default.jsp
A Compliant Internet Service Provider: Nearly all Internet service providers
(ISPs) automatically enable the SSL session described above. If you use
your company's internal connection to access the Internet and you find
you cannot access The PaulLabrecque.com, secure pages with an SSL browser
described above, your company may be blocking access with a "firewall." Please
speak to your company's Internet systems administrator for further details
about your network's Internet access.
Enabled Cookies: You also must have cookies enabled
on your browser in order to access confidential
If you have chosen to disable cookies on your browser, you will not be
able to access The PaulLabrecque.com, Health Manager.
User ID and PasswordThe PaulLabrecque.com requires the use of a User ID and
Password as a security measure that helps protect your confidential
This allows The PaulLabrecque.com, to verify who you are, thereby allowing you
access to your account
and preventing unauthorized entries. When you have finished using The PaulLabrecque.com make sure you always logout and close
your browser window.
You should be aware that browser software often "caches"
a page as you look at it, meaning that some pages are saved in your computer's
temporary memory. Therefore, you may find that clicking on your browser's "Back" button
shows you a saved version of a previously viewed page. While caching is
common on most Internet sites, The PaulLabrecque.com, Manager does not cache
your pages. Caching in no way affects the security of your confidential
User ID or Password. If you use a computer in a public place to access
simply quit or exit the browser software before leaving to remove the possibility
of anyone else viewing your confidential

We use firewalls at many levels to prevent unauthorized Internet users
from accessing our system. All messages entering or leaving our system
pass through these firewalls and are examined according to our security
policies. If the defined criteria are not met, the message is blocked.
A firewall is considered the first line of defense in protecting private
Virus ProtectionOur systems are also protected by virus programs that
are kept current to the latest standards. These virus programs provide
another layer of protection for our systems and our users.
How You Can Protect YourselfThe PaulLabrecque.com can reasonably ensure that the data
you store in our system is kept safe and secure. We cannot provide protection
for your computer or the connection you make to the Internet. Here are
a few steps you can take to help make sure that your computer connection
remains safe from unauthorized intruders over the Internet: Your
Password: By making your password at least 8 characters
long and by mixing both numbers and letters, you can help The PaulLabrecque.commake
your password even more difficult for an unauthorized user to "guess"
It is recommended that you change your password at least every 6 months.
Your Username: Your username, combined with your
password, provides you access to your The PaulLabrecque.com,
member areas. Your username should be at least 8 characters
in length and can be letters and numbers. Keep in mind that
the longer usernameis and
the greater mixture of letters and numbers you use (alpha-numeric), the
more difficult it will be for an unauthorized person to "guess"
Personal Firewalls: Much like the firewalls that
The PaulLabrecque.com uses to protect your data, a personal
home firewall will help protect your home computer from unauthorized
users entering your computer from the Internet. There are many
home computer firewall programs available.
Spyware Protection: Also called adware, spyware
is any software that secretly gathers user
through the user's Internet connection without his or her knowledge, usually
for advertising purposes. Spyware applications are typically bundled as
a hidden component of freeware or shareware programs that can be downloaded
from the Internet. Once installed, the spyware monitors your activity on
the Internet, including email addresses, passwords, usernames,
and credit card numbers. Spyware transmits that
secretly to someone else who will either use it for advertising and marketing
purposes or sell the
to another party. The PaulLabrecque.com does
not endorse any specific product or service, but we have listed examples
of spyware detection and removal software for your review. It should also
be noted that a personal firewall might help detect and prevent spyware
programs' attempts to communicate to or from your personal computer.

Virus Protection: At the
time this document was written, there were more than 2,300 known computer
viruses. Every computer should have a virus detection program running
in conjunction with personal firewall software. Your local computer store
can help you select a program that is right for you. The PaulLabrecque.comdoes
not endorse any specific product or service, but we have listed examples
of virus protection software for your review:
