Safe & Secure Shopping

Rest assured that your personal and credit card information is safe with us. We utilize a firewall and also protect all transactions using Secure Sockets Layer (or SSL, sometimes referred to as a secure certificate), which is an encryption technology that works with Netscape, Microsoft Internet Explorer, and AOL browsers. This ensures that only we can view your personal information.

You know how a lot of people are scared of flying, even though it's statistically safer than driving? The same paradox exists for online credit card use versus traditional credit card use. Online purchases are statistically safer than using your credit card at a restaurant or department store. Technical experts state that online purchases are far safer than traditional credit card transactions because the information is immediately encrypted into a scrambled message that can only be decrypted by an authorized computer.

Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, we will cover the liability for you up to $50.00. We will only cover this liability if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at our site while using the secure server. In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting guidelines and procedures.

Update: We have a certificate from TrustedSite, a company that verifies the legitimacy and "trustedness" of retail websites. According to them: "Sites earn TrustedSite certifications by maintaining a high level of website safety standards and good business practices. Look for TrustedSite trustmarks when you shop online and purchase with confidence." You can find that tab in the lower right corner of the website. Making a purchase on a Turstedsite website protects qualifying customers with 90 days of TrustedSite Shopper Identity Protection after every purchase. This identity theft coverage is good for up to $100,000 towards the costs associated with identity restoration.
