SECURITY AND ACCESS
For transmitting personal information, such as when you use a credit card to register, we use a secure server (SSL), which encrypts all of your personal information. This encryption process ensures that the information you give us is protected against unauthorized access.
While we make every effort to ensure that your information is secure on our system and in most cases transactions are completed without difficulty, we cannot guarantee “perfect security” on the Internet or offline and we are not responsible for the success or security of your transactions and you do so at your own risk.
