Online Security

Protecting your data with encryption

At Sheffield Mutual, we take the security of your personal and financial details very seriously.

We encrypt (put into a secret code) all the information you send through our online quotes and policy applications to keep it as safe as possible during transmission.  We also encrypt all the sensitive information you send us which we store in our online records.

We use what's called Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption with Extended Validation (EV). This scrambles the information you enter to make sure that we're the only ones who can read it.

An EV SSL Certificate gives you more confidence that you are interacting with a trusted Web site and that your information is secure. An EV SSL Certificate triggers high-security Web browsers to display our name in a green address bar and to show the name of the Certificate Authority that issued it. The Certificate Authority uses an audited, rigorous authentication method and browsers control the display, making it difficult for criminals to hijack your data.

Although we will always do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to us via the internet. You are using this website, therefore, at your own risk.

If you're ever concerned about security on our website, please contact us.
