Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a technology that secures the connection between a browser and a website.   To verify that SSL is protecting a page, look for a URL beginning with https://, instead of http://, and a green, closed padlock icon.   

SSL provides three important security benefits:

  • Privacy: Encrypts the connection between the browser and web server and securely transmits information (like login credentials) to prevent unauthorized parties from eavesdropping.
  • Data integrity: Prevents unauthorized parties from altering data during transmission (like during a Form Block submission).
  • Authentication: Protects against impersonation by requiring web server proof of identity.

Our online store is also protected by SSL to keep credit card data safe and secure.   Our checkout pages are Level 1 PCI compliant and use 128 bit SSL encryption.  You can read more about Compliance HERE
