How do I know if a website is secure?
In order to be accurate, we are going to get a bit detailed here. When buying something on the Internet, there are three things you need to be sure of:
- The data you send will be strongly encrypted.
- The site you are doing business with is the site you think it is.
- The site you are doing business with processes your information in a safe and responsible manner.
Points 1 and 2 are taken care of by SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), the industry standard security protocol that Online Store uses to communicate with secure browsers like Safari and Internet Explorer. When communicating with a secure server like ours, these browsers encrypt the information you send in a way that is extremely difficult for anyone else to decode. (You do not have to know whether your browser supports secure transactions - if it doesn not, you will not be able to complete the checkout process.)
Many security experts say the most important thing is what happens once the merchant receives your order. At The M&R Companies, we use GoDaddy Secure Certification Authority, the leading provider of electronic commerce solutions, to keep things on our end as safe as possible.
