The main purpose of cookies is to
identify users and possibly prepare customized Web pages for
them. When you enter a Web site using cookies, you may be asked
to fill out a form providing such information as your name and
interests. This information is packaged into a cookie and sent to
your Web browser which stores it for later use. The next time you
go to the same Web site, your browser will send the cookie to the
Web server. The server can use this information to present you

Browsers and Internet Security
When you submit an application
request through our website, we or an affiliated insurance
company or health plan provider encrypt it using Secure Socket
Layer ("SSL") technology. SSL protects information as it crosses
the Internet. To support this technology, you need an SSL-capable
browser. Professional Benefits and Ins. Services recommends using a strong
encryption, 128-bit browser such as Microsoft's Internet Explorer

browsers will activate SSL automatically whenever you begin
shopping for plan on our website and when you return to our
website to complete an application.
