Security Precautions to Protect the Loss, Misuse or Alteration of Information

It is recommended that the user/client does not divulge their password to anyone. Nationwide Credentialing, LLC will never ask the user/client for their password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. As an extra security precaution, the user/client may want to logoff once a session is complete. This is to ensure that others cannot access personal information and correspondence if a computer is shared or a computer is being used in a public place.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Nationwide Credentialing, LLC strives to protect personal information, Nationwide Credentialing, LLC cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that is transmitted to Nationwide Credentialing, Inc. from our on-line services, and the user/client does so at their own risk. Once Nationwide Credentialing, LLC receives information, Nationwide Credentialing, LLC makes our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
