Security

We Care About Security

HTTPS stands for “Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure” and it is the secure version of HTTP.  Our site forces all pages to use this secure protocol which means all communications between your browser and the website are encrypted.

We prioritized security when finding a suitable host for our website.  We selected a host with considerable industry experience and a highly praised reputation for delivering solid security year after year.  You can read more about Pressidium’s awesome security here: https://pressidium.com/blog/2017/secure-wordpress-hosting-total-lockdown/

We respect your privacy and your data.  We will not sell your data to any third party and we will take measures to protect it.  When it comes to your payment data, we use a payment processing system that complies with the highest industry standards to help keep you safe.  (See more about payments below.)

We accept most major credit cards and Paypal payments.  Our payment processing system is Braintree Payments by Paypal which meets the highest industry standards in online data security and payment processing.  We do not store or even have access to your payment data.
