What kind of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse, or alteration of information sent?
We value your business and are committed to doing everything possible to make our online ordering process is 100% secure. Our website is protected through McAfee SECURE, protecting your personal information and making your orders secure.
Secure Ordering Process
Any credit card information you enter on our site is strongly encrypted by industry-standard protocol, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). We use SSL to communicate with secure browsers like Netscape and Internet Explorer. These browsers encrypt your credit card and personal information in a way that makes it extremely difficult for anyone to decode.
Once you have completed your order online, our security procedures do not end. For example, the moment you press "submit" to send you order, the encrypted order is sent directly to our order processing system. Your order is automatically pushed through the system and never "sits" in an unsecured queue. As an added precaution, we do not keep your credit card information on our ordering system once your order has been processed. Although this may be an inconvenience to you (you must re-type your credit card information each time you place an order), we feel that this step is the safest way to conduct online business and ensure your security.
Ways to tell when you are in a secure section: In all browsers, look for the "http" in the URL to change to "https." The added "s" represents that you have entered a secure area. The entire ordering process on our online store, from when you decide to checkout until your order is confirmed, is conducted on a secure server. Further, many popular browsers have a symbol to indicate secure mode.
