From its site to its checks, Checks Unlimited takes extreme precautions to keep your data and checks safe. To ensure the privacy and security of customer transactions, the company uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and GlobalSign's digital certificate.
Regarding protection, every check has security features such as chemical protection, which makes stains appear when the checks have been tampered with, erasure protection, which makes a black mark appear when anything is erased, and a security screen. Checks Unlimited also assures its customers that it will keep in touch with your bank to stay up-to-date on any mergers or changes in the industry that might affect your account information.
For an added fee, you can also get checks with Securiguard® that add additional protection against check fraud. Checks with Securiguard® have a security hologram, which is a reflective image that can’t be photocopied or removed, and that’s a visible indicator of authenticity.
