Security using SSL technology

To assure that any information you submit is safe, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). This means that any information you supply to us, including credit card information, will be encrypted whilst in transition to our servers.

How do you know your session is secure?

Both Netscape and Internet Explorer have built in mechanisms, which when activated, allow for secure transmission of information. Look for the padlock icon in Netscape (located on the toolbar and in the bottom left hand corner) or Internet Explorer (bottom right hand corner). If the padlock is open, you are using an insecure link.
