An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are connected to the Internet.

We request information on our order form. Contact information such as name, phone numbers, shipping and e-mail addresses are used to fill the orders and contact the user in case of difficulties in processing the order. Sensitive information such as credit card number and expiration date is used for billing purposes and is submitted using a secure server (see SSL section below.)

SSL Security

When sensitive information is submitted using our order form it is protected using Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL) the industry standard encryption technique. When you are asked to submit a page containing your credit card information you will notice a “https://” at the beginning of the URL or web address. In addition note that the “lock” icon on the bottom of your browser will be in the “locked” position. This is known as a “secure page.”
