Is my online purchase via credit card secure?
Yes. All transactions are processed using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology, which is designated by a padlock icon in Internet Explorer and Firefox. SSL encrypts the transmission of your payment information in such a way that only the parties involved in the transaction can read the information. In addition, your information will never be shared with a third party. A $1.00 authorization credit card charge will be assessed at point of purchase to test account validity, and will be removed from your account within a few days.
