We use the process developed by Netscape-SSL
(Secure Socket Layer)-to guard information. SSL is the industry standard
for online security. Today's web browsers support this protocol,
including Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer and others.
Before a business can use SSL, it must be certified by an independent authority. This trusted third party will determine if the business is legitimate. VeriSign, one of the largest such companies in the world, certified us.
How to Tell It's Secure
There are a couple of ways to tell if the information you are receiving is coming from a secure server.
1. Check the security icon. Most browsers use a key (Netscape Navigator) or padlock (Microsoft Internet Explorer). An unbroken emblem indicates a secure browser.
2. Check the URL field of your browser. With a secured server the address will begin with https:// instead of the usual http://.
