Privacy Policy

GovJobHub.com Security & Privacy Statement

Overview

GovJobHub.com is committed to respecting the privacy of our users. We strive to provide a safe, secure user experience.

Security of Personal & Financial Information

We have implemented commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes.

When you place an order online at GovJobHub.com, your credit card information is protected through the use of encryption, specifically, the Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") protocol. Credit card data is processed by PayPal.com and not stored by GovJobHub.com. 

Independent agencies report that (statistically speaking) using a credit card on the Internet through SSL is far safer than submitting your credit card to a clerk in the grocery store, or over an open telephone line. In fact, they report that there are no recorded instances of someone "breaking" SSL encryption and using credit card information stored therein for fraudulent purposes. Secure URLs always begin with "https://" rather than"http://" and if you are using one from a browser that recognizes SSL(including Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, AOL's version 3,and Spyglass, among others) you will generally also receive a preceding message and/or see a symbol, such as a lock, that signifies that you are on a secure page. Any information you enter on such a page is encrypted at your browser,sent over the public Internet in encrypted form, then de-encrypted at our servers.  Additionally, we used internationally recognized PayPal as our payment processor further assuring our customers of the most robust security and data protection available.

If your browser doesn't support SSL technology, you will receive an error message when trying to access our SSL page.

The SSL technology depends on secure Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) which are certified by a certifying authority. GovJobHub.com career management software is powered by Adicio which in turn uses Verisign asa certifying authority to process credit card transactions.
