What We Do To Protect Privacy

SSL technology causes your browser to encrypt your order information before transmitting it to our secure server. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent someone other than operators of our website from capturing and viewing your personal information.
While we use industry standard means to protect our website and your information, the Internet is not 100% secure. The measures we use are appropriate for the type of information we collect. We cannot promise that your use of our website will be completely safe. We encourage you to use caution when using the Internet.
