Security Policy

Our Security
At the security of customer data is as important to us as it is to you. Physical safeguards, procedural controls, and data access controls protect your data from unauthorized access. We continually monitor our systems to prevent unauthorized attempts at intrusion.

SSL Encryption uses strong 256-bit encryption and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), a protocol for transmitting private information via the Internet. SSL uses a private key to encrypt data that is transferred to us. This protocol is a standard used by many websites when you submit confidential information such as credit card numbers and other personal data. SSL creates a secure connection between your browser and our server. Addresses of web pages using an SSL connection start with “https:” instead of “http:”, and most browsers also display an icon of a closed padlock when you visit a page using SSL.

Our site is 256-bit SSL encrypted for maximum security.
