Your privacy and your security are extremely important to us. This section describes how we collect information from you, what we do with it, and how we protect it.
Whenever, you make a purchase at our websites ("Website"), your payment information is encrypted and secured. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology and no credit card information is stored once it is processed. It is also encrypted (translated into a special code that cannot be read by anyone except the intended recipient) during transmission and then it is destroyed. SSL also confirms the identity of the server and tells us that the message arrived safely. This is the most secure system available and offers the strongest possible deterrent against fraud and hackers. In addition, the Company has implemented standard operating procedures which ensure that our servers can only be accessed by authorized personnel on a strict "need to know" basis.
