AssayQuant® takes reasonable measures in order to safeguard your personal information.
Payment information (such as credit card numbers or banking information) and information about the security vulnerability of users' websites are protected by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the aforementioned information when viewed online.

We have put in place encryption software, which encrypts or distorts all data you submit to AssayQuant® through our website. This encryption will be processed at [256 bits], making it a difficult code to hack into without the appropriate decoding software. Your personal information is immediately encrypted as it is sent, and is then decoded by AssayQuant® or a third party operating on its behalf and the converted data is used to process orders and requests received through our website. AssayQuant® also works to ensure that our employees are aware of the sensitivity of the data submitted to us and that they handle it with care, being careful not to allow any improper access by third parties.
