We are committed to protecting the security of your online transactions
We Encrypt Your Credit Card Information
When you register at our site, and provide your credit card number and other credit card information, we use Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) technology. SSL technology encrypts the information you send — scrambling it — so that it is virtually impossible to decipher and read in transit. SSL technology is currently the industry standard.
Your browser will let you know when it is in “secure” mode. Rather than the standard “http” term, the Internet address will begin with “https”, with the “s” standing for secure. In addition, most browsers in secure mode display a padlock in the lower corner of the browser window.
Our security system currently works with Web browsers that can use SSL, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.
The actual encryption strength on a secure connection using a digital certificate is determined by the level of encryption supported by the user’s Web browser and the Web server that the website resides on. For example, the combination of a Firefox browser and an Apache server normally enables up to 256-bit AES encryption with our SSL certificates. This means that depending on the browser and server that combine to establish the secure connection through one of our SSL certificates, the encryption strength of the secure connection may be 40, 56, 128, or 256 bit.
