Note on Security
We respect your privacy and work hard to safeguard the privacy of your personal information. We use encryption, firewalls and other technology and security procedures to help protect the accuracy and security of your personal information and prevent unauthorized access or improper use. When making a transaction, credit card information is submitted via a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection. SSL, a protocol developed by Netscape for transmitting private documents, such as credit card transactions, through the Internet, works by using a public key to encrypt data that's transferred. Both Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer support SSL, and many Web sites use the protocol to obtain confidential user information. By convention, Web pages requiring an SSL connection start with https: instead of http:.
