e-Booking Service Online Service Security Statement

Internet security is not solely a technology issue, common sense as well as normal practice in safeguarding personal and transaction data are of equal importance. Hackers need a "door" to get into an Internet system. Access through this "door" are often exposed to hackers due to simple carelessness in the physical distribution of and handling of sensitive data (such as personal contacts). Hence, users must handle such sensitive data with extreme care.

While the Internet is not an inherently secure environment for communication, Internet communication can be made safer by the application of appropriate technology as we have done. We take security matters very seriously and treat all personal identifiable information obtained from users of our website confidential. In addition to the firewalls and other sophisticated equipment implemented, we also adopt the following measures to protect our e-Booking Service, and the information and data kept thereby from accidental or malicious disruption or destruction.

We also employ 256-bit encryption to encode all communications of sensitive data. Encryption enables users to continuously send encoded information back and forth across the Internet with a high degree of security. Users will notice from the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that the Hyper-Text Transport Protocol Secure (HTTPS) instead of Hyper-Text Transport Protocol (HTTP) will be used to access the secured site of e-Booking Service, and a padlock icon would appear at the bottom of the browser once a secured web session is established. By double-clicking on this padlock icon, users may view details of the digital certificate for the web server and verify the server identity by examining the certification path and certificate status.


Encryption - A process to encode the contents of message so as to hide it from outsiders. That is, it is a process of scrambling and transforming data from an easily readable and understandable format (plaintext) into an unintelligible format that seems to be useless and not readily understandable (ciphertext).

Firewall - A firewall is a system or combination of systems that helps to prevent outsiders from obtaining unauthorized access to internal information resources. The firewall enforces the access control policy, i.e. permit or deny, between two networks. It provides a single point where access control and audit can be imposed.

Hacker - A person who illegally gains access to your computer system.

Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) - Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) is an application-layer protocol which allows the transfer of text, graphics, sound or movies over the World Wide Web via a hypertext interface of a web browser.

Protocol - A set of rules for governing the transmission and receipt of data.
