How We Protect Your Personal Information

We consider protecting the security of your personal information as extremely important. When you enter sensitive information such as a credit card number on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (sometimes referred to as “SSL”).

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.
