o process your orders and/or notify you of shipping / delivery information. This information is st
ored in a secure database, and is only available to individuals with proper clearance. To offer our

ice partners. These partners provide us with data collection, storage, e-mail/mail support, analysi
s and reporting services and are restricted from using your information in any way, other than to

Is it safe to shop online?
 
Today, the Internet is actually the safest way of doing business with your credit card. We have m
ade it safer to use your credit card on our site than it is to use it in more traditional ways, such as
in retail stores or restaurants.
 
What is SSL and how does it help protect my privacy?
 
We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology for mutual authentication, data encryption and da
ta integrity- all to help ensure secure transactions for our customers. SSL is the industry standard
security protocol to encode sensitive information, such as your credit card number. SSL creates a
shared digital key, which only lets the sender and the receiver of the transmission scramble or un
scramble information. To everyone else, even the servers relaying the message, the SSL transmis
sion is indecipherable. SSL encryption can only be broken by intercepting the encrypted message
, recording it, and using a computer to try every possible combination until the key is cracked. M
ost keys range from 40 to 1,024 digits long...as you can imagine, the number of possible combina
tions can be into the billions and beyond! SSL deals with data encryption during transmission, no
t storage.
 
What about Encryption?
 
Encryption is based on the mathematical scrambling and unscrambling of messages. The type of
encryption we use assigns two keys - one is a public key and one is a private key. When you sen
d us a message, you use our public key to encrypt your message. Once we receive your encrypte
d message, we use the private key to decode it. The same key cannot both encrypt and decrypt in
formation. So, information encrypted using the private key can only be decrypted using the publi
c key, and vice versa- ensuring the security of your information.
 
What are Secure Sites?
 
Before completing any transaction on a website, you should make sure it is a Secure Site. Being
on a Secure Site means you are connected under the cloak of SSL security. You can tell if you ar
e on a Secure Site if you see a padlock or key somewhere along the bottom of your browser's win
dow or in the address bar above. If the lock is closed or if the key is unbroken, you are dealing w
ith a Secure Site.
 
What are cookies and how do they affect my privacy?
 
Simply put, a "cookie" is a small file that serves as an identifier stored on your machine. Althoug
h they are not required to browse our site, we use cookies to make web shopping possible. For in
stance, when you are ready to purchase an item, a cookie allows our site to "remember" you have
added the item to your shopping cart.

om's privacy policies.
