Protecting your order information is a priority
for us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect the
security of your online order information.
To check the security of your connection, look at
the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the
server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your
browser), then SSL is active and the server is secure. You can also
double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a
secure server, the first characters of the site address will change
from "http" to "https."
Some versions of browsers and some firewalls
don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you
won't be able to connect to the server and therefore won't be able to
place an order through an insecure connection. If you cannot access the
secure server for any reason, please print our order form and place your
order by phone.
