Huzizit uses two methods to ensure the security and privacy
of your data: an encrypted database and SSL technology.
SSL technology encrypts data between your browser and our server.
This means that your password and private contact information
cannot be read on the Internet at a company firewall, ISP, or other
location. It also provides assurance that we are who we say we are,
and that your data is going to Huzizit and not to someone
pretending to be us. You can view our SSL certificate by using the
"about security" feature in your browser. The certificate authority
checks our identity before issuing the certificate; you can read
about their procedures on their website.

Security page, Microsoft's New to Security
Huzizit uses an encrypted database to store your personal data.
This means that backup and archived copies of the data will also be
encrypted, and makes it extremely difficult for an unauthorized
person to read it if they should somehow obtain a discarded disk or
intercept data on the Internet.
Every effort is taken to ensure the security of the Huzizit
server, and access is limited to trusted personnel. However, since
the server must be connected to the Internet, and must operate on
unencrypted data internally, it is theoretically possible for an
unauthorized person (a hacker) to obtain access to data by
analyzing our software. For this reason Huzizit does not
unconditionally guarantee the security of your data. The same
proviso applies to all online sites - government, financial, ISP
Huzizit maintains backup copies of the database at remote
undisclosed locations. In the event of a serious problem with the
main server it is anticipated that the database may be recovered
within a few days. However, Huzizit currently does not have the
resources to recover quickly from a major disaster (a meteor
strike, for instance) affecting the Vancouver region or loss of key
personnel. As Huzizit expands, these issues will be addressed.
