Products & Shopping: Website Security
All online transactions at Simply Australian are handled with industry-standard SSL encryption. When your web browser is set to its defaults, a small yellow lock in the status line of your browser will appear. This lock signifies that all information being sent or received is using a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). SSL is an advanced encryption technique that ensures secure data transfer between your browser and our server.
You will initiate the secure connection automatically once you proceed to the check out. All communication from thereon -- entering email address and password, your billing and shipping information as well as your credit card details -- occurs through the encrypted (secure) channel. If you wish to switch to the secure connection right away, click here.
For added security, we also encrypt the credit card number when it is stored until your order is processed. We permanently discard your credit card number once your order ships, unless you specify that you would like us to keep it on file for future transactions. In any case, this information never travels or is stored in unencrypted form.
If you are not the kind of person who worries about being hit by lightning as you're crossing the street, you probably don't have to worry that your credit card number will be intercepted on the way to a secure Web site. According to CNN,
"The prevalent opinion...is that on-line credit card use is actually no riskier for consumers than traditional "low-tech" transactions."
We order products online all the time, both as a company and as individuals. When we use a credit card to buy something online, we feel at least as safe as we would using one in a store or restaurant.
