Security

All online transactions are handled with industry-standard SSL encryption. When your web browser is set to its defaults, a small yellow lock in the status line of your browser will appear. This lock signifies that all information being sent or received is using a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). SSL is an advanced encryption technique that ensures secure data transfer between your browser and our server.

You will initiate the secure connection automatically once you proceed to the check out. All communication from thereon -- entering email address and password, your billing and shipping information as well as your credit card details -- occurs through the encrypted (secure) channel.

For added security, we also encrypt the credit card number when it is stored until your order is processed. We permanently discard your credit card number once your order ships, unless you specify that you would like us to keep it on file for future transactions. In any case, this information never travels or is stored in unencrypted form. The equipment storing your personal information is located in a secure, state of the art hosting facility.
