WHEDA makes every effort to ensure that all customer information is safe and accurate. We protect our customers' information by implementing security policies based on industry-accepted practices and standards, and by utilizing appropriate electronic and physical safeguards to enforce those policies.

The security controls utilized on this web site and by all WHEDA technology systems are implemented to protect all sensitive data from modification, inappropriate use, or loss. WHEDA maintains all data only for as long as reasonably necessary for the use of the data or to adhere to any legal reporting or documentation periods.

WHEDA has a strong commitment to protecting information submitted to us using our web site. This web site is secured using Transport Layer Security Layer (TLS) encryption for personal information that is submitted to us or accessed while using the site. The TLS encryption is accomplished using digital certificates from industry standard providers, Thawte® and Verisign, Inc. Most browsers will show a lock icon next to the address bar when a secure page is visited. Look for this icon on any web page that asks for or displays your personal information. The presence of the lock icon ensures that all information you send to us will be encrypted.


Please note that standard e-mail is NOT a secure means of sending sensitive data, such as financial or other personal information. If you need to provide us with sensitive information like your bank account, charge card, or social security number, contact us by postal mail, facsimile, or telephone rather than e-mail.

WHEDA will never request that you submit sensitive information to us from your personal e-mail account. If you receive an e-mail message requesting this type of information, you should be suspicious of the authenticity of the request. Please do not share any personal information, user identification, passwords, account numbers or PIN numbers in response to these types of requests.

If you receive a suspcious-looking e-mail that is seemingly from WHEDA, please forward it to
