Sharing Data with Third Parties
How your information is encrypted.
There are two areas on the site where you may enter and submit private information. Both areas are protected using SSL encrypted transmissions between your web browser and our web server. This protects against the remote chance that someone (e.g. on your network at work or at your Internet service provider) may try to compromise your private information as it travels from your web browser to our secure server. You'll know when transmitted data is safe by a security notice when you enter a secure page, and by the presence of an icon on your browser, either a key for Netscape or a lock for Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome. The pages where you submit your account information, and place an order are all secure. MTX Audio uses our own secure gateway under the name mtx.com and would never intentionally take chances with your private information, and the MTX Audio staff has taken every precaution to ensure your personal security.
About SSL, security, and firewall problems
Some older browsers (such as IE 3.0.2) have known SSL bugs. These can result in the browser crashing on SSL pages or giving error messages. MTX Audio staff recommends that you upgrade to the latest version of whatever browser you prefer. For AOL users, you may be able to upgrade your security by downloading and replacing the schannel.dll from Microsoft. For users behind corporate firewalls, you need to configure your web browser security settings. These include setting https or secure proxy settings. To determine if you have such a security problem, you can edit a secure URL, replacing 'https' (secure) with 'http' (insecure). If the page works with http:// but not https://, then you have a problem with your security settings. You should contact your system administrator for assistance.
Technical Details About Encryption
MTX Audio and mtx.com operates with a secure server certificate issued by Network Solutions Certificate Authority, featuring today's strongest cryptographic techniques to ensure that Digital IDs are not forged or tampered with. These techniques, developed by RSA Data Security, use a matched pair of encryption and decryption keys. This use of matched-key cryptography with a 1024-bit key length provides a level of security unavailable with conventional secret key cryptography.
