Purchasing on Our Website Through PayPal
We have put a number of technological protections in place to ensure that our transaction process via our website is extremely safe and that our customers’ information is secure:
- When you temporarily leave our site to complete your transactio, PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to the PayPal site, their server checks that you’re using an approved browser – one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
- This protects your confidential information – such as credit card numbers, online forms, and financial data – from interception and hacking. Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.
- SSL technology is embedded in all popular browsers and engages automatically when the user connects to a web server that is SSL-enabled.
- It’s easy to tell when a server is using SSL security because the address in the URL window of your browser will start with https. The “s” indicates a secure connection.
