Protect the confidentiality of your Investor ID and Password.
Before you can use the Service, you must obtain an Investor ID, Password and a Security Pin. Our online enrollment form permits you to select an Investor ID and Password of your choice. For security purposes, each Investor ID must be unique and can contain any combination of alpha, numeric, or special characters.
The password is case sensitive. It must contain both alpha and numeric characters and at least one upper and one lower case character. Your password enables us to identify and authenticate your use of the Service. Because your Password will permit entry into the Service, you agree to keep your Password confidential.
Creating a good password and keeping it a secret is essential to keeping your computer account secure. As you are responsible for what occurs with your Investor ID, it is strongly recommended that you follow these guidelines to prevent someone from obtaining your password and abusing your account.
Make your password unique to you and change it regularly. You should never use a password that would be easy for others who know you to guess, or one that a common password cracking utility could find.
Memorize your password. Your online password authenticates you when you begin an Online log in session. You should memorize this password and never write it down anywhere or reveal it to anyone.
Change your password regularly. It's important to change your password regularly, which you can easily do when you begin an Log In session by clicking on Profile.
Do not share your password with anyone. Sharing your password or PIN with another is the same as giving that individual authority to use your name in a transaction.
Do not say your password out loud.
Ensure your information is secure.
Sending sensitive information such as your Security Pin, or other personal data over the Internet can be dangerous if you can not validate the reputation of the company you are doing business with and communicate over a "secure" means of transmission. Before sending private information on the Internet, make sure you are using a "secured" connection.
When you sign in to your account from the gctempdemo.spiderscript.net, web site, your Investor ID and password are sent over the Internet from your computer to ours using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts your personal information before it leaves your computer, ensuring that no one else can read it. Once you have signed in, you can check that your My Office session is secure in two ways:
Look for the small padlock icon usually located in the lower right hand corner of your Web browser window. A closed, or locked, padlock indicates a secure connection.
Look for the letters "https://" at the beginning of the Web site address or URL in your Web browser. The "s" means secure.
In addition, we suggest you do not keep sensitive information on any of your hard drives, and keep financial data on a removable diskette in a secure location.
