PROTECTING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
Shop With Confidence! Protecting Your Personal Information
256 Bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL Technology)
EthnoGifts.com uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to provide you with the safest, most secure shopping experience possible. SSL technology enables encryption (scrambling) of sensitive information, including passwords and credit card numbers, during your online transactions. All of the forms on our site are secured with SSL technology so your personal information stays safe and out of malicious hands.
Does your site have a secure connection? How am I able to tell if it is a safe connection?
Our site uses SSL encryption to secure the communication of all sensitive information passing between your browser and our servers. To confirm that it is a secure connection, you should see the https in the URL. The “https” indicates that it’s using SSL. Furthermore, you should see a yellow lock at the bottom right corner of your browser.
Shouldn’t the address bar show https:// rather than http://www.ethnogifts.com/? Doesn’t the ‘s’ at the end mean it is a secure connection?
We use https:// only for our secure pages, i.e. those pages that transfer confidential information such as the Login, My Account, and Checkout pages. Pages that are only used for products or blogs will still use the regular http:// since no sensitive information is being passed through them.
If I save my payment information in your system will it be safe?
Yes! Our awesome security staff go to great lengths to ensure the safety of our customers’ payment information. Not only are we PCI compliant and encrypt connections using SSL technology, we also encrypt payment information traveling within our company as well. All payment information is encrypted while in storage within a network that is firewalled off from the rest of the company and the internet.
Thanks for shopping with confidence!
