Security when purchasing.
We use SSL Certificates from Verisign, their Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology protects our website and makes it easy for you to trust that the data you supply us with is secured in three essential ways:
- An SSL Certificate enables encryption of the sensitive information you give us during online transactions.
- Our SSL Certificate contains unique, authenticated information about us as the certificate owner.
- A Certificate Authority verifies the identity of the certificate owner when it is issued.
This simply means that all personal data you give us while on our site is securely encrypted before being sent to us for processing.
Security of financial information.
