Security

Our website's ecommerce system uses SSL encryption to protect sensitive data transmissions from your computer to our website. You are able to see when the SSL encryption is active either by the "padlock" icon at the bottom of your browser's window or by a blue line around the window. In certain areas, password protection is used to protect your privacy and security. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. When entering transactions through a shared computer, be sure to sign off when finished and don't use the "Remember Me" option.  Although we may believe this SSL encryption is secure, we cannot guarantee that it cannot be hacked or compromised, or that it cannot otherwise fail.
