This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control.
All credit card information utilizes state-of-the-art 128 Bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology from Network Solutions, the most widely used data encryption coding system for secure e-commerce transactions.
All of your information is encrypted (scrambled) prior to being sent over the Internet to our system. Encryption is a process by which a message or information is scrambled while it is in transit to Schusters.com. It is based on a key that has two different parts, public and private. The public part of the key is distributed to those with whom you want to communicate. The private part is for the recipient’s use only.
So long as you use a browser that allows for encryption, when you send personal information to us, you use a public key to encrypt your personal information. If your information is intercepted during the transmission, it is scrambled and very difficult to decrypt. Once we receive your encrypted personal information, we use the private part of our key to decode it.
To protect your information once we receive it, we place it on systems behind secure firewalls, which are communication-management computers designed to keep information safe and inaccessible to other Internet users.
To confirm that your connection is secure, look for a locked padlock icon or solid key icon at the bottom of your browser window.
The letters “https” (rather than “http”) located in the URL address window at the top of your browser also indicate that you are using a secure browser.
