It is very important to us that you feel comfortable using your credit card to make on-line purchases. Here are some of the many ways that we keep you, your privacy and identity safe:
We use the latest Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt the credit card information that you send over the Internet
We do not keep any customer information on line: no tracking of your purchases, no logging-in, no files anywhere to be hacked
We check your billing address against the one on file at your bank
We require a correct expiration date
We require a correct security code for your credit card, known as the CVV number. This number does not appear on your bill, statement or anywhere other than the card itself. We keep this information only as long as it takes to authorize your purchase and then purge it form our records
We identify your credit card with only the last four digits in email and receipts
But, is it safe? It is as safe as can be. It is certainly at least as safe as giving your credit card to a waiter at a restaurant, a gas station attendant, or signing an electronic signature pad at a retail store.
As a general rule, credit cards offer you the most secure form of payment. Your liability is limited to $50 on any unauthorized charges. This protection does not always extend to check and debit cards. For this reason, there are often daily limits placed on debit/check card purchases similar to the daily cash withdrawal limits. Please check with your bank.
