Our website uses SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology, the industry standard, which encrypts sensitive information including your name and address, email address and highly confidential information, such as a credit card number.
When you are using a security-enabled browser, the information you send us while on a secure page is encrypted. Encryption safeguards the information so it cannot be read by unauthorized parties.
When you are on a secure page, here is how you will know:
- Your browser's location address will begin with https://
- You will see a lock icon at the bottom of your browser window that may look something like this: (The image varies depending on the type of browser you have.)
Note that not all pages within the website are "secure" (this popup window is not secure for example). This is normal. Making all pages secure would slow the website down. Only pages used to transmit personal details (billing address, email address, and credit card information) need to be secure.
