How your information is encrypted
certain areas on the YEN site where you may enter and submit
additional information. Some of these areas are encrypted using SSL
encrypted transmissions between your YEN browser and our YEN server.
This is designed to reduce the 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 YEN
browser to our secure server. You'll know when transmitted data is
encrypted by a security notice when you enter an encrypted page, and
by the presence of an icon on your browser, either a key for Netscape
or a lock for Microsoft Internet Explorer. The pages where you submit
your account information, place a Earth bid, and receive confirmation
of a successful Earth bid are all encrypted. In addition, your credit
card information is encrypted within the YourEarthNow.com database
and access to such information is restricted. This system is unique
and designed to provide you with additional security when purchasing
items on YourEarthNow.com.
SSL, security, and firewall problems
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.
YEN 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 YEN browser security settings. This includes 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.
Protecting your login ID and password

are your only identification for Earth bidding and broadcasting
purposes. If you receive information about a Earth bid you did not
place, or questionable communications regarding your account, please
