Using Visa/Mastercard/AmEx/Discover with SSL
We are partnered with Square, one of the nation's leading payment gateways since 2009, to accept and process credit card payments safely and securely for our customers.
How can you know that your information is being transmitted on a secure connection?
There are a couple of ways to know whether your information is being transmitted securely or not:
Before entering your personal information, look at the website's address. If the address begins with an "https", you can know that you are in a secure/encrypted environment. The "s" in "https" stands for "secure." This is the first (and easiest) way to know that you are in a secure environment. t.ook for signs of an extended validation certificate. Extended validation certificates indicate that a company's identity has been extensively vetted by a 3rd party validation certificate authority. Different browsers display extended validation certificate indicators differently. Some browsers display a small lock symbol either in their address bar and/or at the bottom of the browser window. The lock symbol indicates that a secure connection is in place.
Who has access to your credit card information and how will it be processed?
Once the "complete purchase" button has been pressed at the end of the checkout process, Square manages all of the complex routing and verification of your sensitive credit card information.
Both our company and Square adhere to strict industry standards for payment processing, including (but not limited to) the following:
128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology for secure Internet Protocol (IP) transactions.
Industry leading encryption hardware and software methods and security protocols to protect cardmember information.

Additionally, full credit card numbers are never stored on our servers or made available to be viewed by any individuals at any time.
