Security, Purchases and Credit Card Use
We have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Essentially, we encrypt all transmission of sensitive data and secure all repositories of data. When you use your credit card to shop with us, your transaction is secure. For the purposes of handling credit card transactions, we have contracted with a PCI DSS compliant ecommerce partner. Our servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an advanced encryption technology that works with most major browsers. This technology safeguards your personal information and privacy. However, you should understand that “perfect security” is never guaranteed.
Nature of Data on the Internet
Due to the complexity and open nature of the Internet, there is always a risk that information collected by and/or displayed on this or any other site may be compromised or accessed notwithstanding the implementation of reasonable data security measures by us. To mitigate such risks, you should (a) use secure usernames and passwords and carefully protect them from disclosure; and (b) implement updated internet security and virus protection software on your computer system. Should you suspect that your computer’s security has been compromised or that your username or password may have been accessed by a third party, please contact us immediately and request to have your password changed.
