Security Of Your Private Information Is Our Top Priority.
We strive to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts information you input. beantowntea.com's checkout page is protected by SSL to keep your credit card data safe and secure. On checkout pages, we’re Level 1 PCI compliant and use 128 bit SSL encryption.
Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, is a technology that secures the connection between your browser and the website you’re visiting. To verify that SSL is protecting a page, look for a URL beginning with https://, instead of http://, and a green, closed padlock icon. This allows visitors to submit information through a secure connection.
SSL provides three important security benefits:
- Privacy: Encrypts the connection between the browser and web server and securely transmits information (like login credentials) to prevent unauthorized parties from eavesdropping.
- Data integrity: Prevents unauthorized parties from altering data during transmission (like during a Form Block submission).
- Authentication: Protects against impersonation by requiring web server proof of identity.
We transmit the encrypted credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. We use PCI compliant payment gateway for Commerce transactions.
It is also important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer.
