How we protect your information
We are committed to protecting your credit card information, and work hard to keep it safe:
- We encrypt all the data you send us or we send to you. This prevents anyone from being able to get your name, billing address, or credit card number while it is being sent over the Internet.
- We never print your entire credit card number on reports or save it in a database. Once the transaction is completed or canceled, we won't know what your credit card number is nor will anyone be able to go back to the credit card page to find it.
- Our credit card payment pages are programmed so they don't allow a copy of the page to be saved in your web browser memory. This prevents anyone from finding your credit card information by searching the pages you have viewed on the Internet.
How to tell this is a secure web site
You can be sure your information is protected when you see the following:
- The address shown at the top begins with an "https" instead of "http." The "s" means the page is secure.
- Depending on the web browser you are using, you may see a small padlock symbol displayed on the bottom line (status bar) of your browser window, or in the top right immediately after the web address area.
What happens to your credit card information after you submit it
The data is re-encrypted and forwarded to our Credit Card Authorization Service provider. They check with your bank to verify your credit card is valid and you aren't exceeding your credit limit. If the charge is approved, the Credit Card Authorization Service provider sends us an authorization number and we let you know that your transaction was completed successfully.
