TeamSnap uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology, which is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.
This is important because the information you send on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. Any computer in between you and the server can see your credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, and other sensitive information if it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate.
When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to. This protects the data from hackers and identity thieves.
You can rest assured that we take every step we can to ensure the security of the information that team owners, managers and players enter here at TeamSnap!
