Privacy & Security
We no longer require clients to register, sign in and use an account. This reduces the amount of data we hold and improves your online experience. Instead, purchases can be made simply and easily without the need for an account.
HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) is the secure version of the Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP). When you connect to a website through HTTPS, your visit is encrypted with a digital SSL Certificate. You can tell if you are securely connected to a Website by looking at the URL. If the URL begins with https:// instead of http://, the page is secure. When you connect to a website with an SSL Certificate, all of the data passed back and forth between yourself and the website is secure and encrypted. By having SSL on all web pages of our site, your visit is secured the entire time you are on our site – protecting any and all data that is transferred.
Google believes that always-on https is critical to online security and data privacy.
