as a credit card number), that information is encrypted and is protected
with the best encryption software in the industry, Secure Sockets Layer
(or SSL). While on a secure page, such as an order form, the padlock icon
in the status bar or header of web browsers (including Internet Explorer,
Firefox, Safari and Chrome) becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or
open, when you are browsing other non-SSL web pages.â€¨While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we
also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All

restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to

representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

will not send them any newsletters or promotional messages in the
