Secured shopping and payments

Your personal data protection

This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) that information is encrypted and is protected with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. While on a secure page, such as our order and registration forms, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers such as Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked to show that SSL is in use.

Secure connections (often called SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer technology) are the industry standard in Web security. SSL is used primarily for transmitting sensitive information over the Internet. When you have a secure connection between your browser and a website, no one else can easily access the data that you send across the connection.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user information offline. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Finally, the servers on which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

We are currently use hi-rate 256 bit SSL encryption of the information transferred between a customer’s browsers and our website server. This encryption guarantees that none piece of your personal information may be intercepted and used by any third party. Our encryption is certified and verified by Verisign - leading global certificate authority of SSL certificates. For example Google company uses SSL certificates for its business web services such as Google Analytics, Google AdWords, Google Webmaster and others.
