Store Security — Help Protect Yourself
If you use a security-enabled browser (such as Microsoft® Internet Explorer® version 2.1 or greater, or Netscape Navigator version 2.0 or greater) paying attention to two browser features will decrease the chances for the unintended or fraudulent use of your personal information:

1. Browser security settings

Your browser security preference settings are your first line of defense to stopping the theft or unwanted viewing of confidential, personal information. The most popular browsers offer you the ability to receive an alert or notification if any of the following happen or are about to occur:
  • Change between secure and insecure transmission modes
  • Receiving an invalid site identification for the site to which you are about to transmit
  • Sending a transmission over an "open" or unsecured connection

Check the settings of your browser security features to see all the checks that are possible and those that are currently in place.

2. Browser security signals

The presence of security measures surrounding the entry of data on a web page is identified in two ways for you on your browser:
  • The URL identifying the page will always begin with "https://" versus the normal "http://"
  • A security symbol to indicate operation in a mode that supports secure transmissions
  • A "closed lock" icon is present in the bottom right-hand corner of your Microsoft Internet Explorer browser screen
  • An "unbroken key" icon appears in the lower left-hand corner of the Netscape Navigator browser screen

If still concerned about the security of your credit card information, we encourage you to submit your order without this information, and we will contact you to complete your order.

If not using a browser with these standard security features, or if you are still uncomfortable with submitting your personal information via the internet for any reason, please feel free to
Contact Us via phone or fax regarding your purchase.
