What is your security policy and how to you protect my information?
We use industry-standard efforts including firewalls, data-encryption methods and password protected data sources to safeguard the confidentiality of your information. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to reasonably safeguard and secure the information we collect. Sensitive data that we collect is encrypted before it travels over the Internet using industry standards for secure online transactions. We use Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") technology to protect the transmission over the Internet of your payment card data. You can check the security of your connection by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure site, the first characters of the site address change from "http" to "https." If you are using a web browser or firewall that does not permit communications through secure sites, you will not be able to make purchases on our site. We use sophisticated encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of the personal information that you share with us. The personal information you provide to us is preserved behind a firewall, instead of being directly connected to the Internet. That said, however, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Once we receive your transmission, we have appropriate security measures in place within our physical facility to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the personal information you have provided to us. We urge you to keep your password for our Site in a safe place and not divulge it to anyone. Also remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit to our Site, so as to ensure that others cannot access your account inappropriately; especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or Internet café or in an area with an unsecure Wi-Fi network.
