MAXIMUS, as developer and manager of this web site, has implemented commercially reasonably technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect the integrity of its communications and computing infrastructure and your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access, modification, or use. To protect your communications through this web site, we authenticate, monitor, audit, and encrypt activity. You can tell when the site is secure by looking at the location (URL) field. If the URL begins with https:// (instead of http://), the document comes from a secure server.

Please note, that despite our efforts, no security measures are completely secure. Use of this system constitutes consent to such monitoring and auditing.
