Is it safe for me to shop online at

Your online orders at are just as safe as any other credit card purchase that you'll ever make. We use a sophisticated encryption technology to keep your credit card information safe while you're shopping online. At we use SSL (Secure Socket Layering) 256 bit encryption to protect your information as it travels over the internet. This is the highest level of encryption available for e-commerce, and even with a brute force computing attack, cracking a 256 bit encryption key is computational unfeasible. Along with the encryption key, we also hold a digital certificate through GoDaddy. This key ensures that we are who we say we are and that any data exchanged online is protected from theft and tampering. Consumer protection laws protect you against any unauthorized use of your credit card, and our service comes with a $10,000 warranty if you were to suffer financial loss as a direct result of relying on this certificate. If you suspect any illegal use of your card, call your issuing bank immediately to make sure your rights are protected.
