SECURITY

Bottom line, we take security and privacy very seriously. We recognize that before we can help you with your 401k, we have to keep your information safe and secure.

Here’s how we do it:

BANK-LEVEL SECURITY

We use 256-bit SSL encryption. This is fancy IT jargon that basically means that the connections between you and our servers are secured to industry standard specifications.

INDEPENDENTLY AUDITED

As required by the SEC, every year we are independently audited by a CPA firm. They are thorough, unrelenting, and we are perfectly happy to comply.

SECURE SERVERS

Your information is stored behind state of the art firewalls on servers in a secure facility. The facility is guarded 24 hours a day by security staff, surveillance cameras, and biometric hand scanners.

ONGOING PROCEDURES

We don’t maintain credit card information and use auditing, logging, backups, and safe-guarding of data.

HACKER SCANS

We’ve run numerous security tests of our own software and systems including, port scanning, SQL injection tests, and cross-site scripting.

VIRUS PROTECTION

Our systems maintain the latest virus, malware and spyware protection software.

THIRD-PARTY CUSTODIAN

Any 401k that we manage for you is held by an independent custodian, not by us.

BACKGROUND CHECKS

Everyone on our staff has passed a thorough background check.

ADDITIONALLY, WE HAVE BUILT IN A NUMBER OF SAFEGUARDS INTO OUR APPLICATION:

N

Auto-Logout

If you are inactive for an extended period of time we automatically log you out so unauthorized people cannot access your account.

N

Personalized Email

All emails coming from blooom will address you by name, so you can be confident we know who you are and the email is coming from us.

N

Third-Party Verification

We have a security seal and certificate from Verisign who has also verified our identity.

PRIVACY

We understand keeping your information secure and confidential is critical to earning and keeping your trust – so is maintaining your privacy. We never rent, sell or trade your personal information to anyone. Ever.
