The Benefits of Newly Enhanced BreachShield(SM)

I am an advocate of internet security and I despise hackers and data breachers. I feel relieved to have a reputable software installed on my computer but I am also at ease to know that there are leading companies who are dedicated in providing identity theft protection services such as Affinion Security Center.

The information below are taken from “Affinion Security Center Launches Medical Identity Theft Benefits and Other Enhancements to Industry-Leading BreachShield Product” press release. You can find the entire release here.

To combat the problem, the newly enhanced BreachShield(SM) includes a wide array of new benefits for companies to offer their consumers in the event of a breach of their personal data, including medical information. The new benefits include the following:

* Internet Surveillance – Real-time, web-crawling technology monitors underground chat rooms, websites and blogs where thieves trade and sell stolen Social Security numbers and credit/debit card data. Should any of the monitored information be found on these web portals, members are automatically sent an email alert, enabling them to act quickly and re-secure their compromised information.
* DataSweep – Comprehensively monitors up to three of each of physical addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers on Internet directories – prime sources of data for spammers and thieves. Every two weeks, DataSweep checks online directories and search engines and lets members know if their monitored personal information is available for public viewing. They will know exactly which sites are displaying their information, and are provided with advice on how to request removal of their information from a particular website when applicable.
* Fraud Assist Toolbox – A convenient, online tool that helps streamline the identity theft recovery process. Members simply select the type of problem they are facing, and the guide will provide step-by-step instructions for resolving the issue. Members can choose to set fraud alerts, stop pre-approved credit offers, and stop unwanted telemarketing calls.
* Credit Card Registration – Members can store information from credit, bank, and department store and other retail cards in a single, secure location. Should these items become lost or stolen, members can cancel these cards and request replacement with one toll-free call.
* Up to $1,000,000 in Identity Theft Insurance Protection – Insurance includes coverage for unauthorized fund transfers, legal expenses, and the costs of re-filing applications for credit and notarizing affidavits in each case, resulting from the theft of a member’s identity.

Through Nathaniel Lipman’s leadership, the Affinion Group has grown to be the world’s leader in membership services, insurance providers, loyalty programs, value-added checking programs, and security services.

Experience China At Super Bowl

Because I missed the luxurious dining at Super Bowl of China with my friends, I dragged my boyfriend to this resto yesterday after buying MTG booster packs. We went home bloated after our lunch date. Yay!

Sorry for the blurred images. I am struggling real hard while taking those photos since my phone battery was about to get empty. And by the time I was able to charge it there, I am already starving and I couldn’t resist the tempting servings on our table!

Prepaid Is The Perfect Gift

Are you looking for that perfect gift for a family member, friend or loved one? Shopping a gift for them may sound easy, but it’s never as simple as it seems. That’s why the simplest and easiest way to gift them would be to buy them prepaid credit cards. When you gift prepaid credit cards, you can rest easy knowing that your loved ones will be able to pick out exactly what they want and save you from the headache trying to figure out what they would want.

Head down to any local store or pharmacy that carries the money pack reloadable prepaid cards. You can set the amount to anything you wish (in most cases, it will not exceed five hundred dollars for your own safety). Because it has the Visa, MasterCard or American Express logo, it can be used in any store that accepts these cards and for online purchases over the Internet. Also, because it is a prepaid credit card, it isn’t linked to any particular account. This means anyone can use it at any time.

A prepaid credit card is also perfect for college students who have to live within a budget. You will never have to worry about going over your limit, over draft fees, penalties for going over your limit, and even better, almost all prepaid credit cards come with no monthly fees. Some however do charge a reasonable monthly fee but provide enhanced services in return. Even then, it is rarely over five dollars a month, which is much better than the interest rates and fees associated with a traditional credit card.

So, if you want to shop for that special someone without the hassle of going from store to store, hoping that what you picked out is something they’ll like, purchase a prepaid credit card. This will allow them to shop wherever they want, and buy whatever they like.

John Hardy: Going for the Green

Conservation is now a necessity, not a simple request. The environment needs to be protected, not abused. And no company shall deny their role within the world of carbon emissions. Liability is no longer hidden. The John Hardy company understands this and seeks to rectify it. Championing a cause beyond jewels, the brand is no longer content with the minimum. Instead they wish to reinvent not only their image, but corners of the globe itself.

In 2006 the Sustainable Advertising Project began. Through this John Hardy created a way to defend against greenhouse gases and their complications: the company shall return what it takes. This philosophy may seem to be an easy one but it is no less effective because of that. Due to the brand’s unusual usage of bamboo (a tribute to their Asian influences), acres are now being planted in reverence. The islands of Bali and Nusa Penida will receive this reward and the effects will be soon felt.

John Hardy: Customers Unite

There is more to this than simply providing bamboo to barren acres, however. The efforts rely instead on consumers. Each piece purchased within the collection will offer donations to the cause. It’s through the funding and support of John Hardy’s clients that miles can now be restored.

And all of that support has led to even more attempts at environmental consciousness. Since the program began, efforts have been made to stifle carbon by reducing plane travel. Meetings have been conducted wirelessly and paper usage has been cut by over 70 percent. Such gestures help to offer balance and a promise of hope. John Hardy is not simply a jewelry brand. It is instead a new beginning and customers can follow their lead.
