Use of Secure Firewalls and Cookies:
Capify uses secure firewalls to prevent unauthorized access to our internal systems. We have Internet firewalls designed to securely separate the Internet from our internal computer systems and databases. Data coming from customer computers via the Internet flows through a series of safety check points on its way to our internal systems so that only authorized messages and transactions enter our computer systems.

Once you leave the website, the originator of the cookie no longer has the information that was contained on it. For example, when you login to Capify and are authenticated through your login id and password, a cookie will store the identification number of your browser. Throughout your session, the session cookie acts as a type of digital signature to identify your current session to the Web Server.
