SAFEGUARDING YOUR INFORMATION
We have taken precautions, including the deployment of technological resources and the use of firewalls, systems and procedures, to protect the security of your personal information. While no security system is absolutely foolproof, we are constantly reviewing, refining and upgrading our security technology to protect your privacy.
When you submit personal information via our site, such as a credit card number, that information is encrypted and protected by industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) with a 128-bit encryption to ensure the highest level of protection. SSL technology takes your order and scrambles or encrypts it to ensure that it cannot be read while being transferred. SSL uses a Digital Certificate to verify who we are and to encrypt and decipher your order so that only we can read it.
