Confidentiality and Security Statement
Please read the following Confidentiality and Security Statement regarding your
use of Food Donation Connection's eLog system. By proceeding, you are agreeing
to be bound to this Confidentiality and Security Statement.
Maintaining the confidentiality and security of your information is important to
us. We use several layers of security to maintain the confidentiality of your
When you sign on to eLog, your web browser and our web server automatically
encrypt information that is sent back and forth. This encryption provides a
secure channel between your browser and our web server, to protect the
confidentiality of the information. Our web server uses Microsoft's Secure
Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt this data.
User Account and Password
Each user has a unique user account on this system. Your user account allows you
to view the information that you are authorized to access. Therefore, it is
important that you protect your user account and password. See below for
important information on protecting your password. By accepting this document,
you authorize eLog to respond to a request for a new password via email. The new
password will be delivered to the email of record in your system profile
maintained on your "My Account" page.
Firewalls and Other Protection Services
Firewalls are designed to protect a company's internal computer network from
external users. We protect our network using firewalls that allow only
authorized types of communications to occur. In addition, we use other
monitoring and protection services to protect the security and confidentiality
of our internal network.
We have developed and implemented a security policy that applies to each of our
employees and other authorized users of our internal network. This security
policy covers the procedures that must be followed to protect the security and
confidentiality of our internal network.
Your Responsibilities for Protecting the Confidentiality of Your Information
Protecting Your Password
You are the key to safeguarding the confidentiality of your information. To
protect your data, you must supply a password to sign on to eLog. This password
must be changed every forty-five days.
Do not use family member names, words associated with known interests, or items
on or around your PC or work area. It is recommended you use "nonsense words",
misspelled words, words not generally found in a dictionary, or acronyms from
short phrases be used (example: My Name Has 5 Letters In It = MNH5LII).
You must never reveal your password to anyone.
You should not write your password down, display it, or in any way make it
accessible to others.
Your user account is for your use only. Neither Food Donation Connection nor
your company will ask you for your password. If you receive a phone call or
e-mail from someone asking you for your password, immediately end the
conversation and notify your manager immediately.
Other Steps to Protecting Your Information
Do not walk away from your computer in the middle of an active eLog session. If
you are logged on, and walk away, anyone can sit down at your computer and have
immediate access to your information. Always remember to log off when you are
finished with your session.
We strongly recommend that you clear your browser's cache after you leave the
eLog site. This prevents someone else from being able to view your account
information that is temporarily stored on your computer.
You can clear your cache two ways:
1) close down your browser and then re-initialize it; or
2) without closing your browser, by using the instructions provided in your
browser's online help system or your browser's preferences menu.
For maximum security when viewing your account information over the Internet, we
strongly recommend that you use a browser with 128-bit U.S. security level
