We understand that you’re concerned about the security and privacy of your online transactions. This is why we use security technology so that your valuable data, such as credit card details, are encrypted when you interact with our site.
“How do you secure my payment information?”
We employ state-of-the-art data encryption to provide secure transactions to our site.
Your computer and ours agree to transpose whatever we are sending into an unintelligible “hash” of characters, using a technology called SSL to make it an encrypted communication.
For your safety, please expect anyone who communicates confidential information with you on the Internet to use encryption the way we do.
What is SSL?
Secure Sockets Layer, SSL, is the security technology we use for encrypting a link between a web server and a browser. When using this all data passed between our web server and your browser remains private and secure. Whenever you communicate with us on our payment pages your browser is doing so by engaging SSL.
“How do I know you are a real organization?”
To generate an encrypted SSL transmission, a web server requires an SSL Certificate.
Our SSL certificates are issued by a leading Web Trust-compliant certificate authority, meaning that their business practices and processes have been rigorously audited according to AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) guidelines by an independent approved auditor. This high assurance certificate enables a high level of encryption and also confirms that a company is an accountable organization.
To receive a High Assurance SSL Certificate, we had to demonstrate that we are an existing business, along with our ownership of the domain you are visiting. When you shop online, you deserve to know who you are interacting with.
Seeing a site with a High Assurance SSL Certificate, confirms two essential factors:
- That you have a secure SSL (encrypted) link with this website
- That this website represents a real organization
