Internet? Are you afraid your credit card number will be stolen? For the most part, the media has overhyped the security

program will again encrypt the data using PGP encryption technology and our public key.

private key, and we safeguard that key.

and unreadable. Your order will safely reach us and your information will never be publicly readable as it bounces through the
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!).
