    SECURITY

    The Contest is "Powered by the Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Web Server" located and secured on its premises at Brookfield Place, Toronto. To maximize security for our visitors, hhof.com and legendsofhockey.net support versions of Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) browsers that use 128-bit encryption. Both sites have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We employ a VeriSign Class 3 Digital ID authenticated by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce recognized by IE 5.01, Netscape Communicator 4.7 and later browsers. Older browsers will still create a secure SSL connection at 40, 56 or 128 bits depending on the precise browser version. Entrants with older browsers (non-SSL-enabled) or operating from behind corporate firewalls may not be able to establish a secure session with our server and will therefore have to upgrade their browser or use an SSL-enabled browser that is not behind a firewall.

    Encryption is a means of scrambling information for transmission, in this case, between your PC and our web site. Information that is encrypted (scrambled) at one end is decrypted (descrambled) upon receipt at the other end. 128-bit encryption is the strongest, most secure form of encryption that is generally available in Internet browsers today. 40-bit encryption is the basic minimum standard that is prevalent in most browser products. Your browser probably uses 40-bit encryption unless you have specifically obtained 128-bit encryption.

    CHILDREN’S GUIDELINES

    The Hockey Hall of Fame encourages children to consult with their parents before furnishing data. We believe that parents should supervise their children's online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address and other personal information without parental permission. In general, we do not knowingly collect information from children under 13 via hhof.com and legendsofhockey.net. Upon registration in the Contest, notification is provided instructing children under 13 to seek permission from their parents or legal guardian before entering any personal information.
