Our Secure Socket Layer (SSL) software assures that your credit card number, address and password is encrypted, by using 128/256 bit encryption technology for transit over the Internet. This encryption technology allows business transacted over the Internet to be far safer than giving your credit card information over the telephone or giving it to a store or restaurant clerk.

The web sites listed in the Safe Shopping Network have been tested by us to help you decide which ones you should shop at.
