Security

 
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users` information. When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line.

When our booking form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected by the best encryption software in the industry - SSL (128 bit encryption). While on a secure page, such as our booking form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just `surfing`. To learn more about SSL, follow this link: www.webopedia.com/TERM/S/SSL.html

Furthermore all payment information submitted in our forms is password encrypted with PGP. Pretty Good Privacy or PGP was written by Phil Zimmermann in 1991 and has since become an industry standard to store and transmit sensitive data using 1024 bit passphrase encryption. For more information about PGP please visit: http://www.openpgp.org/about_openpgp/history.shtml

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users` information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to user information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our users` information is protected.

If users have any questions about the security at our Web site, users can send an email to it@oh-barcelona.com.
