High-Grade Encryption (AES-256, 256 bit keys)
We offer high-grade encryption (AES-256, 256 bit keys), which encrypts your personal and credit card information as it is transferred over the Internet. We electronically verify each order with the credit company, returning an order confirmed message only if the issuing bank authorizes it. Our experienced staff then manually checks all orders which still appear unusual, canceling any order we feel is not valid.
