When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).
Nothing is more important than keeping our customer’s payment data secure and that is why we always insist on our payment processing providers being PCI compliant.

The standard provides an actionable framework for developing a robust account data security process - including preventing, detecting and reacting to security incidents.
