Security

We are ever mindful of the importance of strong security procedures in an online world. To this end we use Secure Socket Layers (SSL) whenever we ask you to enter personal information. When this happens:

  1. Your internet browser checks our security certificate (issued by an independent third party) to make sure that the site you are connecting to is truly the MUST site and not someone else intercepting.  
  2. Your internet browser and our server then exchange the unique codes that will be used to scramble ("encrypt") and descramble ("decrypt") the information being sent.  
  3. The browser and server then start talking using the encryption. When this happens you'll see the little lock icon in the bottom right-hand corner of your browser and the web page address will begin with https://. This shows the pages are being processed securely.
    what a secure page looks like
    Above is an example of what a secure page looks like on Internet Explorer. Other browsers may show it in different places, but the lock is a common theme.

If you have any questions about the security of this site, please open a Help Desk ticket and we will assist you as quickly as possible.

Privacy

We take your privacy seriously as well. We are in full compliance with the Data Protection Act and hold the personal information you provide when you take up a MUST membership in strict confidence.

As it concerns this site, we do require you to log in each and every time you access your membership information. To enable you to login and remain logged in, we utilise "session cookies". Session cookies, as their name implies, only work for a single session, meaning that if you logged into our site, turned your computer off and came back the following day, you would have to log in again.
