E-commerce Security

All transactions performed through our system are safe and secure. First, all transactions are protected by 256-bit SSL encryption from your browser to its destination; including information that is sent to our system through our SSL Certificate as well as information sent to your financial institution through its separate SSL Certificate. Through the resulting encryption, we don't see your bank card number or store it on our system. Your bank card number is passed encrypted to our Payment Gateway and all the see, in return, is either a unique acceptance/authorization code or a code declining the transaction. Our payment gateway is through JPMorgan Chase Paymentech and funds are received by our depository bank JPMorgan Chase. Our e-commerce systems are PCI compliant and audited.
