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 information:


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.

Security Policy

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.

Password tips:
1. 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).
2. You must never reveal your password to anyone.
3. You should not write your password down, display it, or in any way make it accessible to others.
4. 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 encryption.
