How do we protect your information?
Your personal information and its security is the of utmost importance to us.
We encrypt information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) when you enter sensitive information such as a credit card number on our registration and / or order forms. For purchases made online with credit cards, your credit card number is stored in an encrypted form for a limited amount of time. We never store PIN data or 3-digit security codes and our employees do not have access to this information.
All appropriate technical and organizational security measures are used and updated to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, disclosure, alteration and destruction, both during transmission and once we receive it.
