We use Paypal for payment processing in our online store, which allows you to pay with a Paypal account or any major credit card. Paypal's state-of-the-art technology, experience, and commitment to privacy mean you can shop with confidence.
PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to their using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to the PayPal site, their server checks that you're using an approved browser - one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
Once your information reaches the PayPal site, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.
