Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure correct use of information, we have employed reasonable and current Internet security methods and technologies.
The Payment Gateway makes use of 128-bit SSL technology to encrypt credit card and billing information while it is transmitted over the internet.

When you make a purchase online, either a solid key or a locked padlock icon will appear in the lower right of your browser window. This icon indicates that your transaction session is secured through SSL.
The information is sent to your card issuer’s bank over a secure, proprietary connection. When the authorization process is complete – this takes around five seconds – you receive an approval or decline response in your browser, and we are informed appropriately to initiate the shipping process.
