Our Goal: Worry-Free Shopping
There is a lot of concern over how safe private information is on the Internet. Since we're also Internet shoppers, we're concerned, too!
There are two kinds of security that we particularly worry about:
1. Someone stealing your credit card information over the Internet. 2. Someone using a stolen credit card to place orders.
We hope you feel as we do that we've gone above and beyond what is considered "standard" security for the Internet and that your shopping experience is fun and, most importantly, worry-free!
We have partnered with strong industry leaders, such as VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Wells Fargo Bank, Netscape, VeriSign, CyberCash, and others to make sure your private information stays secure.
The Most Powerful Encryption on the Internet
All the experts agree: If a vendor takes standard security precautions, transferring private information over the Internet is actually safer than handing your credit card to a waiter or checkout clerk.
We make full use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology supported by the vast majority of browsers on the Internet. This technology represents the highest level of security available on the Internet and automatically:
* Encrypts information while traveling over the Internet. * Verifies the identity of the server using a certificate and digital signature. * Verifies that the original content of a message arrives at a destination.
Sensitive information is always stored under a password, thus adding an additional layer of security. When you set up an account at Hall Letter Shop, you choose your own password for the account and you control who has access to your account. You may change your password at any time.
Credit card information is never stored with your account at Hall Letter Shop. It will need to be entered each time you re-order, but we believe the security issue outweighs any minor inconvenience.
Specific and Random Verification Checking
We verify credit cards against a fraud database of stolen credit card numbers through our use of Verisign as our credit card authorization partner.
Upon placing an order, we'll send you an email confirming the order. We'll also send you an email as soon as the order is shipped. This will not only keep you informed of your order's progress, but will also alert you if someone is using your account or computer without your permission.
Final Protection: Credit Card Issuer Guarantees
Just like in the physical world, credit card purchases are insured through your credit card company over the Internet. This final layer of protection from your credit card company limits your liability in the case of fraud and acts as a safety-net for everyone doing electronic commerce over the Internet. Typically, debit cards are treated differently than credit cards so you should check with your bank. Also, see your credit card company for more information.
