Payments made through this site are 100% secure; our provider uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to create a secure later between your browser program and internet connection for maximum safety online.
Upon placing an order on our site, a small padlock will appear in your browser’s window. This shows that your browser is displaying a secure page, and you’ll find that if you click on this padlock you will see the digital certificate information which guarantees the page’s identity.
SSL also encrypts data and verifies that it was not altered between communications between your computer and the server. To the very best of our knowledge there has never been a breach of security reported using SSL technology, and at no point are any credit card transactions sent via an unsecure connection.
