We use the latest technology to be sure all transactions are secure.
Here are just a few of the ways we protect you and the data you submit
We use technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) that "encrypts"
any data transmitted between you and us as long as the Web Browser
you're using also supports SSL. All the most popular Browsers support
SSL in recent versions.
Encrypted data is much harder to decode than regular data, making it
much less attractive to a hacker. Before you actually submit your
information to us, your Browser encrypts the data. It remains encrypted
during the transmission and then it is decoded by our Web Server when it
In order to use SSL, we had to apply for the privilege to conduct
Electronic Commerce and go through a strict approval process to obtain a
digital certificate. Our digital certificate was issued by an authorized
security service after we proved we were a legitimate business. The
digital certificate was then installed on our Web Server so that from
now on, we can offer you the security of SSL.
Cookies are another place where web application programs can store
data submitted to a Web Server. They can be placed either on your
computer or the Web Server.
We create temporary cookies while you are online with us. These
cookies make our ordering process possible, and contain only
identification information about our customers. We even go the extra
step of encrypting the data stored in our cookies.
When you disconnect from the internet, or exit your Browser, our
temporary cookies are destroyed.
Here are some of the other ways you can tell if you're engaged in a
secure transaction. For example:
- Most reputable Web sites advertise their security features
- A secure URL will begin with https://etc.etc.etc., while a URL of a
non-secure web transaction will begin with http://etc.etc.etc.
- Many Browsers have visual indicators to let you know that an SSL
transaction is in progress. Look for an icon of a whole lock or a key
(unlocked locks or broken keys indicate a non-secure environment).
- Some Browsers use a dialog box to alert you to the fact that you
are accessing a secure Web server.
