website is a secure website. To protect your personal and credit card
information we have implemented industry standard security and privacy
procedures such as SSL technology.
Credit card numbers are encrypted when stored on the server. They are
never sent through e-mail. SSL technology protects privacy and security
while the information is in transit over the Internet. You will see a lock
or a key at the bottom of your browser when you are supplying personal
information and credit card number (not when you are making product
selections). This is your assurance that your personal information is
taken under the secure mode, and is being encrypted. However, your browser
must support SSL to take advantage of this feature. Most current browsers
today do support SSL.
We do not share your personal information with anyone. We use it only for
our own internal use such as order processing, and to communicate with
you. Your credit card number is never used; even while communicating with
you by e-mail.
You will always receive e-mail confirmation of your order (minus your
credit card number).
It may also assure you to know the following:
Under the Fair Credit Billing Act you cannot be held liable for more than
$50.00 of fraudulent credit card charges. If you suspect unauthorized use
of your credit card, report it immediately to your credit card company in
accordance with their rules and procedures.
Due to the SSL technology and encryption of personal information, it
appears that it is safer to use credit card over the Internet than giving
your credit card number over the telephone, or in a situation where you
hand over your credit card to someone for processing (restaurants, etc.).
