Depending on your level of understanding of how the Internet works, you may not understand what we mean when we say that we are using a "secure server." Without getting too technical, if you are using Netscape or Microsoft Explorer versions 5.0 or later, your browser supports 128 bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption. This means that, when on pages that are designated as secure, data passed from you to the server (such as credit card information) is encrypted, or encoded.
Your credit card is exposed to an equal, if not greater risk when you use it at a restaurant, over the phone, or any other place where someone has access to your credit card information, than it is when use online. And, all major credit card companies now offer risk-free internet shopping protection.
Please contact your credit card company for more information on safe online shopping practices.
At A2Z Hobbies, your credit card is never charged until your order ships.
