OUR SECURITY PRACTICES AND INFORMATION ACCURACY
NTO understands the importance of protecting customer information. NTO adheres to regulatory, security, and privacy standards applicable to the tax preparation industry. NTO’ web-based and desktop applications have a proven record of securing customer information by utilizing a variety of security-related technologies including, but not limited to, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, web application firewalls, encryption, access controls, network isolation, auditing systems, data classifications, and data obfuscation. In order to protect the data as our client enters it into the system, NTO incorporates the use of SSL encryption facilitated by an Extended Validation SSL Certificate issued by a recognized trusted certificate authority. NTO utilizes security guards, access controls, biometrics, man traps, and other security mechanisms to protect physical access to the datacenter.
NTO’s information systems maintain PCI compliance which must be renewed annually. Additionally, our systems are routinely subject to automated vulnerability testing purposely exceeding the requirements of PCI compliance. This practice allows quicker identification and remediation of risks to the privacy of taxpayer data. Internal audits are performed continuously throughout the year to ensure compliance with regulatory standards. If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will retain your information for up to three tax years as long as your account is active, or as needed to provide you services.
