Landmark Group Inc. adheres to very strict and rigorous security standards. Every precaution has been taken to ensure that information concerning you and transmitted to us whenever you use secured areas of the landmark-canada.com site, or such as online application forms, is protected against error, loss or unauthorized access.
Despite these precautions, you must implement the personal security measures recommended on this site in order to maintain optimal protection when you surf landmark-canada.com or any other Internet site.
Personal security measures: Security seal
Be sure you always surf in a secure environment when transmitting confidential data. When you don’t see a security icon (closed padlock) displayed on your PC or wireless device (if the latter offers this functionality), or when you notice an open padlock, this means the security of any Internet transaction or data transmission cannot be guaranteed and could be intercepted by a third party. The location of the security icon varies according to the browser. Explorer browsers display the security icon in the status bar on the lower right hand side of the screen. Netscape browsers display a closed padlock icon in the navigation bar, in the upper part of the screen. Once you’ve located the padlock, click on it to display the certificate attesting to the site’s security. On it you should be able to find the site’s owner (ex: landmark-canada.com) as well as the certificate validity period.
Online application forms
The rules governing our online application forms reflect the highest standards of the banking industry and comply with the Act Respecting the Protection of Personal Information in the Private Sector. All transactions conducted as part of our online application forms are encrypted during secure-environment sessions to protect the confidentiality of data exchanged between the Landmark Group Inc. mainframe and the browser used with your computer or wireless device. That’s why online application forms are only accessible if you use the most recent versions of Netscape (4.6 and higher, except Netscape 6.0) and Microsoft Explorer (5.0 and higher) that support the SSL2, 128-bit protocol.
SSL is an acronym that refers to Secure Sockets Layer, the protocol that permits authentication and data encryption between a Web server and browser. It provides a secure channel for the exchange of data that can only be decoded by authorized persons.
The online forms you submit to obtain a product are stored in a centralized database that is protected. This means the forms are secure and no data they contain can be intercepted by a third party. Furthermore, when an application is sent to a financial institution, your information is protected by the security system of that financial institution.
