We take every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line. When any form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the encryption software provided. While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'. While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line.
