Technical issues

  • My computer screen does not display an entire page. I have to use the bottom scroll bar to view all the information. How can I reduce the scrolling?

    The scrolling results from a combination of your display settings and your font settings. The President's Choice Financial web site has been optimized for a display setting of 800 by 600 pixels. Please consult the help menu of your operating system and browser to determine how to adjust the display and font size so as to avoid scrolling.

  • What is encryption and why do I need it?

    Encryption refers to the practice of scrambling data so unauthorized parties cannot decipher it. It is important that your confidential information remain secure as it is passed between your computer and the issuer's server. To ensure your information is as secure as possible, we require that your browser use 128-bit encryption. This is the most secure browser technology currently available.

  • What is my browser cache and why should I clear it?

    Caching refers to your browser's ability to store visited web pages on your hard drive. Caching is helpful because it allows a page to be accessed from your hard drive instead of from an Internet source. This can help you access pages more quickly. However, if your browser retrieves a page from its cache instead of the Internet source, the page displayed may not be the most recent version. It is important to periodically clear your browser's cache so your browser can retrieve an updated version of a page. It is especially important to clear your cache if you have received an error message and are trying to correct the error. See your browser's help menu for more information on performing this function.

  • Is the site secure for credit cards?

    The PC Optimum points site uses 128-bit security encryption (the highest standard available) to send and receive any credit card information for your orders.
