Protecting your personal and financial information is a top priority at VanDyk Mortgage. We have made every effort to provide you peace of mind while submitting your information to our website. We use Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) whenever sensitive information is sent or received during your application process. When you see the S (stands for Secure) at the top of your URL (HttpS) you know your information is secure. Your information is not kept on VanDyk's webserver, but on one of the most highly secure facilities in the nation - Encompass Systems 360. This is hosted at our state of the art application and secure server facility. An SSL connection allows the browser to confirm a servers identity. Using the standard techniques of public key cryptography it checks that the servers certificate and public ID are valid and have been issued by a certificate authority (CA) listed in browsers list of trusted CA's. This provides an extremely high degree of confidentiality for your information.
