SSL Technology and how you benefit from it
Limited realises how important security is to you, so we've taken a number
of steps to enhance the protection of personal or confidential information
sent to or from Oakmont Limited over the Internet. First, we establish
a "secure session", using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Technology.
This is done any time you supply or access personal or confidential information
in one of our secure online areas.
Technology creates a private conversation that only your computer and
Oakmont Limited systems can understand. The SSL Technology encodes information
as it is being sent over the Internet between your computer and Oakmont
Limited systems, helping to ensure that the transmitted information remains
use of SSL requires two components: an SSL-compatible browser and a Web
server to perform the "key-exchange" that establishes a secure
connection to Oakmont Limited Web server systems.
Oakmont Limited's SSL key is a 128 bit key from GlobalSign.

needed to benefit from SSL Technology
A Compliant Browser
In order to securely access your personal information via the Internet,
you will need a browser with SSL capabilities. We recommend you use the
latest browser versions available to ensure you have a browser with SSL
capabilities. Examples of SSL browsers include Netscape 2.0 and above,
Microsoft's Internet Explorer 2.0 and above, Mozilla Firefox 1.0 and above,
and the Web browser for America Online version 3.0 for Windows and above.
(Note that some older versions of browsers will not support SSL sessions
which means that you may not be able to view all the features on the Oakmont
Limited Asset & Content Register Web site). If you don't already have
A Compliant Internet Service Provider
Nearly all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) automatically enable the
SSL session described above. If you use your company's internal connection
to access the Internet and you find you cannot access the Oakmont Limited
secure pages with an SSL browser described above, your company may be
blocking access via a "firewall." Please speak to your employer's
Internet access systems administrator for further details on your network's

User ID and Password. The site requires the use of a User ID and Password
as an additional security measure that helps protect your confidential
information. This allows Oakmont Limited to verify who you are, thereby
allowing you access to your account information, and preventing unauthorised
you have finished using a secure area, make sure you always click on "Log
Out" which appears on the left-hand side of every secure page. When
you click on it, you will end your secure session. No further secure transactions
can be conducted without re-entering your User ID and Password.
You should be aware that browser software often "caches" a page
as you look at it, meaning that some pages are saved in your computer's
temporary memory. Therefore, you may find that clicking on your "Back"
button shows you a saved version of a previously viewed page. Caching
in no way affects the security of your confidential User ID or Password.
If you use a computer in a public place to access your account information,
simply quit/exit the browser software before leaving to minimize the possibility
of anyone else viewing your confidential information.
to other Internet Sites
You should be aware that other Internet sites that you link to from the
Oakmont Limited site may not be secure. To ensure your privacy is protected,
we recommend that you review the privacy statements of other Internet
sites you visit.
