We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and handled in a PCI compliant manner between us and our payment gateway. You can verify the use of SSL encryption by looking for a closed lock icon on the web page, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personal identifiable information. The computers and servers in which we store personal identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
