: Our Security Policy
We maintain security standards and procedures to help prevent any unauthorized access to your confidential information. We use a full range of systems security measures, including cryptography, filtering routers, intrusion detecting systems, virus detecting systems, firewalls, and trusted operating systems as part of our overall security architecture.
Security of electronic information exchange begins with you and with your information exchange systems such as your Internet browser, your e-mail program and your telephone. The Alistithmar Capital anticipates that you will take every reasonable measure to protect yourself from exposure caused by inappropriate security, eavesdropping or intrusion.
We take steps to protect your personal information, including accounts, transactions, user identities and passwords during the information exchange between you and Alistithmar Capital. For example, your Internet exchanges are protected by series of filtering routers and firewalls that act as a barrier between the outside world and our internal network. The filtering router is the first component that you pass through to gain access to your account information and is responsible for determining who has access to what information. The firewall is the next security component that your exchange of information passes through. The firewall provides a high level of security and authentication of your requests and our responses. It tracks each request that was made, who made it, when it was made, where it was made from and to where our response was destined. Each of those technologies is used to determine whether you are granted access to your requested information while protecting our internal company network from unauthorized outside access.
Access to your account information, through internet trading or other electronic means, is protected with passwords known only to you. Your password must be used only by you when you access your accounts and when you request that transactions be executed on your behalf. The password is known only to you, so you can be confident that your data is secure provided that you take steps to safeguard your passwords and prevent these from becoming known to others.
If you use the Internet to exchange information with Alistithmar Capital, you will be able to see when you are secured during information exchange, when a “locked” icon is displayed at the bottom of the screen or when https:// appears in the address line. This is often referred to as a ‘secured session’. You can increase your level of security by memorizing your password and by changing it regularly. You should try to avoid using passwords that can be guessed by people who know you or who have information about you – for example, avoid passwords that contain your birth date, your name or parts of your name, or that include any well-known values such as your phone number, your car registration, your customer or account number. If you must write down your password, please make sure you keep this written record securely stored.
Alistithmar Capital is entitled to act on any instructions it receives using your password. When you give someone your password, you are authorizing that person to use our internet trading services as though that person were you. That person becomes your nominee. You remain fully responsible for all transactions performed using your password, even if you did not intend or authorize the nominee to act as you.
No employee of Alistithmar Capital will ever ask you for your password, nor should you ever provide it to anyone in any context or for any reason. We do not ever want you to tell us your password.
