companies, your privacy and security are two of our highest priorities.
When we refer to security, we mean the ways we make sure the information
you send us remains secure.
IS MY CREDIT CARD NUMBER SECURE?We have taken many steps to ensure the security of your transaction. Some of them involve adopting industry standards. (For example, the secure connection between your browser and sensitive portions of our site uses industry standard encryption.) Some of them are exclusive to us. (For example, we store your financial information on a system that is not directly connected to the internet.) Our aim is simply to enable you to make transactions with confidence.

It has proven to be a remarkably effective development process. But for people unfamiliar with it, to see each new release of a browser, for example, get pounded on and picked apart, can be rather disconcerting. WHAT'S THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN? Regardless of what happens on our site - a slip of the mouse (unlikely), a security breach (highly unlikely) - there is little risk to you. In the case of fraud, in most states, this means that your maximum liability is the $50. In addition, we'll do our very best to work with the credit card company to minimize the hassle for you. HOW DO I KNOW IF YOUR WEB SITE IS SECURE? In order to be accurate, we're going to get a bit detailed here. When buying something on the Internet, there are three things to be sure of:
