Shop with Confidence - Your Information is Secure

You can shop with us in confidence! We have partnered with Stripe and Paypal to accept and process credit card payments safely and securely for our customers. These partnership continue to be in effect today because we take the responsibility of keeping your information secure very seriously. This includes adhering to strict industry standards for payment processing, including:

  • Compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard  (PCI SS)
  • Serving all our payment pages securely using Transport Layer Security (TLS) so that they make use of HTTPS
  • All card numbers are encrypted with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines
How can you know that your information is being transmitted on a secure connection?

Pressing the "checkout" button on the shopping cart page will take you into our secured payment environment. Once you have started the checkout process, there are a couple of ways to know whether your information is being transmitted securely or not:

  • Before entering your personal information, look at the website's address. If the address begins with an "https", you can know that you are in a secure/encrypted environment. The "s" in "https" stands for "secure." This is the first (and easiest) way to know that you are in a secure environment. Click here for more detailed information about https certificates.
  • Most modern browsers display a small lock symbol either in their address bar and/or at the bottom of the browser window. The lock symbol indicates that a secure connection is in place.
Who has access to your credit card information and how will it be processed?

Once the checkout button has been pressed at the end of the checkout process, either Stripe or Paypal manages all of the complex routing and verification of your sensitive credit card information. For more details refer to Stripe's security documentation by clicking here.

Additionally, full credit card numbers are never stored on our servers or made available to be viewed by any individuals at any time. All credit card numbers are encrypted at the time of checkout, so nobody is able to see you raw credit card number data at any time.
