2. Security and Privacy
We know you’re concerned about online security and privacy. We hope this will answer all of your questions.
- Our secure server: Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. You can safely enter your entire credit card number on the secure server and it cannot be read in transit. Remember, if you choose the secure server, all the information you enter on the order form—name, address, phone number, etc.—is safely encrypted.
- How we store your credit card number: To give you an additional layer of security, we never store your credit card information. After you type in your credit card number, fax it in, or call it in, your complete credit card number is transferred securely to our payment processing network. Again, your information is never stored and so cannot be stolen, pirated or distributed.
- We respect your personal privacy: We do not sell or rent our list of customers to anyone. Period.
