Security. What happens to your data when you place an order.
Are you concerned about placing orders on the Internet? Are you afraid your credit card number will be stolen? For the most part, the media has overhyped the security risks. Using the right technologies, placing an order over the Internet is probably safer than making an order by phone or giving your card to a store clerk. We want you to know that the security of your personal information is of great importance to us. When you place an order, the following steps are taken:
  • Our final order form is located on a secure server at our web site host. When you submit your order, your browser will encrypt the data and send it to the server using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Browsers generally show a small lock or key in the bottom left corner when communicating with a secure server.
  • The server will decrypt the data and run it through our CGI shopping cart program. The program will again encrypt the data using PGP encryption technology and our public key.
  • A PGP encrypted email message will be sent to our ISP.
  • When we contact our ISP to receive our mail, we will receive your PGP encrypted order on our computer.
  • We then decrypt your order using our private key. No one can read this mail without our private key, and we safeguard that key.

From the time you send your order until the time we receive it, your information is encrypted and unreadable. Your order will safely reach us and your information will never be publicly readable as it bounces through the Internet.

Is all this too confusing? Well, trust us when we say that this method is far more secure than placing an order over a cellular or portable phone (or any phone for that matter!).
