Secure Shopping & Privacy Policy


Secure Shopping

Is shopping online at safe?

Yes! is hosted on Yahoo! e-commerce servers. Our Yahoo! Shopping cart system uses secure servers to protect your personal information, including your name, address, and credit card information. Yahoo! uses the Stronghold secure server, currently one of the best selling and technologically advanced secure servers. It supports industry-standard 128-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption.

When you enter your credit card number into the order form, it is transmitted across the Internet in an encrypted (scrambled) form and not decoded until it arrives at its destination on the secured server. For added security, the credit card number is also encrypted when it is stored on disk (no longer than 30 days) and when it is forwarded to our store for order processing.
The following is a description of steps Yahoo! takes to protect your information from misuse when ordering through a Yahoo! Store.

Secure Socket Layer (SSL): Yahoo! Store uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption when transmitting certain kinds of information, such as financial services information or payment information. An icon resembling a padlock is displayed on the bottom of most browsers window during SSL transactions that involve credit cards and other forms of payment. Any time a Yahoo! Store asks for a credit card number during checkout for payment, it will be SSL encrypted. The information you provide will be stored securely on our servers.

CISP Compliance: Yahoo! Merchant Solutions is certified CISP-compliant. Created by Visa and MasterCard, the Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) outlines a standard for security procedures for merchants and service providers that store, process, or transmit cardholder data.
