Security PolicyWe understand and share your concerns about online security. We work diligently to keep our site a highly secure ordering environment where you can shop with confidence. The result is a Web site that offers you the highest level of service, convenience and trustworthiness.
The Secure Order ProcessUsing our e-business software, in conjunction with features built into popular browser software, our site provides advanced security for your online purchases. The following section describes how the secure order process works, from start to finish.
1. Entering Your Order
Every purchase is secure, and clicking a Checkout button on the Shopping Cart page is all it takes to get started. The security features are automatic; you don't need to do anything special to invoke them.
2. Making a Positive ID
Once you've clicked the Checkout button, your browser looks for a digital certificate to confirm that it is communicating with us. Once a positive ID is made, your order continues.
3. Entering Secure Mode
Next, your computer and our server begin communicating in secure mode, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format.
After your browser has entered secure mode, we'll ask you for your credit card information. The encryption features of browser software are exceptionally powerful and ensure the security of data as it is transmitted to our server. Our site makes use of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol and 128-bit strong encryption to provide the highest level of security available.
4. My Order Is Complete. What Happens Next?
Security measures continue even after you've placed your order, as we process your order in a highly secure computing environment. You will receive an email confirmation of your purchase, and you will be directed from Secure Mode back to the website.
We've worked hard to bring you a secure online ordering environment. We hope you'll contact us with your questions, comments or concerns.
