Security

This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users information.  When users submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information is protected both online and off-line. When we collect sensitive information (such as credit card number), that information is collected using third party services with encryption software.  While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when users are just surfing.  While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line.  All of our users information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.  Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.  Furthermore, all employees with access are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.  Finally, the servers that store personally identifiable information are in a secure environment. If users have any questions about the security at our Web site, users can send an email to us.
