Security & Privacy Policies
Security and privacy go hand-in-hand. A company that provides strong security doesn't protect you well if they share your information freely, and a company that respects your privacy can't protect it without strong security. We work to provide strong security while moving and storing information you entrust to us, and show our respect to you by keeping that information private. Here, we will detail what information we store and what we do to protect it, as well as the limited sharing we do.
Your information needs to be protected both in transit (moving across networks) and when at rest (stored).
To protect data moving between you and us or between our servers, we use 2048-bit encryption with Symantec's Class 3 Extended Validation SSL Certificate (read more on Symantec's site). This certificate is not only one of the strongest available for encryption, qualifying for it required us to complete Symantec's strict business authentication process.
When storing and processing data, we add additional encryption processes for sensitive information. Our backups add further encryption, and your information is never backed up to cloud services to minimize risks of compromise.
Data encryption is only part of the answer to protecting your information, though. The other critical part of information security is making sure the software that handles that data is protected from compromise. We have strict internal security policies and practices when developing our software. All code goes through a review process before being placed in use, access to code is strictly limited, all software patches are kept up-to-date and our website is scanned daily by two separate vulnerability scan services.
Privacy is the other important piece of information security. We appreciate your trust, and will honor the trust you place in us by strictly limiting how we share your information. Please read our FAQs below for a detailed discussion.

||When you are ready to make a purchase, you want to know that the company you will be doing business with is reputable. The Better Business Bureau has been helping consumers find reputable companies since 1912.
As a member of the Better Business Bureau and BBBOnLine, we have made a commitment to the high levels of ethical business practices and customer satisfaction that the BBB expects in a reputable business. We have a satisfactory record with the Better Business Bureau and we are committed to upholding the Bureau's policies regarding any possible customer concerns that might arise.
BBB Accredited Businesses are businesses and firms which meet tough BBB Accredited Business standards, agree to follow the highest principles of business ethics and voluntary self-regulation, and have accepted an invitation from us to join.
BBB Accredited Businesses are subject to the same scrutiny we give all businesses. Staunchly neutral, we provide reports on a business' general background and consumer complaint history, if any. These reports cover accredited and non-accredited businesses alike.

The BBBOnLine Accredited Businesses seal is backed by the credibility of the Better Business Bureau system, which brings over 90 years of trust to the newest marketplace — the Internet.
Complaint History: A summary of the business' complaint history and other experience in the marketplace; and/or

You can see each web site's scores by looking at the bars on the right side of each web site listing. Higher bars mean higher scores and higher scores mean these merchants are working hard to earn your trust. SSN takes the trouble to test and score each web site for you. This provides you with objective information from an objective source: Safe Shopping Network.
