We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to offer safe and secure transactions allowing for the encryption of: potentially sensitive information such as your name and address and critically-sensitive information like your credit card number
If concerned only about the privacy of your credit card information, we encourage you to submit your order electronically without a credit card number and a sales representative will contact you to obtain this information.
