If your browser is capable of (SSL) (and most are), your financial information will be automatically encrypted, or encoded, before it is sent over the Internet.

Our Website has also obtained a digital certificate from Verisign, Inc., a leading provider of Internet trust services. When you enter a secure portion of our site (which is any page containing any of your financial information), an image of a closed lock or a solid key should appear in the bottom bar of your browser window. If you click on this image, a small popup window displaying site-security information will appear. The certificate guarantees that your financial information is being transmitted in secure (encrypted) form to our Website Web server, not to some unknown or unauthorized server.

Ultimately, your financial information is protected by the password you created when you created an account at JacobBromwell.com or VermontPen.com (or another password you chose after changing a previous password). Please keep this password confidential. No Customer Service Associate or any other representative of Bromwell will ever ask you for your password. The confidentiality of your password is yours to protect. You may change it anytime by going to "User Registration". Log in with your email address and password, then click "Continue" and enter a new password.
