Your credit card information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software currently available in the industry while traveling the Internet.

"Risk Tools"

Risk Tools are Provided by Authorize.Net , Control Scan and  eTRUST-PRO. All features of the Risk Tools are Enabled for your Protection and Ours. Some examples of these Risk Tools are as Follows:

"(CVV) Card Verification Value"

It must match or the Order is Flaged. We never see your CVV number. Only appears as "Code Match".

"(AVS) Address Verification System"

Another form of the "Risk Tools" is the Transaction Status: Flagged by Shopping Cart! (Authorization with the card issuer was successful but the transaction was Flagged due to an address or ZIP code mismatch with the address on file with the card issuing bank.)

The Address Verification System (AVS) is a system used to verify the identity of the person claiming to own the credit card.

The system will check the billing address of the credit card provided by the user with the address on file at the credit card company.

**********************************************

*Some Important Facts About Online Credit Card Security.

Here are some reasons that there's little to worry about when entering your credit card at eTrust.Pro

*Zero Liability for You Major credit card companies have taken steps to protect you, by implementing "Zero Liability" policies. In other words, you pay nothing in the case of unauthorized purchases.

*Ordering by credit card the safest way to buy online Since you can chargeback fraudulent purchases, ordering online by credit card is generally the safest way to buy online. With other payment methods you often have little recourse if the merchant fails to deliver what you bought, or if you're dissatisfied with the quality of what you ordered.

*Fraud is actually more of a risk for merchants In the case of a transaction dispute, credit card companies side with the consumer the vast majority of the time. Fraud is actually more of a risk for merchants than it is for consumers.

**************************************************

Remember, in the event of unauthorized use of your credit card number, you must notify your credit provider in accordance to the reporting rules and procedures listed in your account agreement.

(A Simple Test can confirm whether you are on a secure server or not. To confirm that your connection is secure once you have entered the shopping cart zone. 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. Rather than the "http" used everywhere else in the site!) TRY-IT!!

NOTE: E-mail is not secure. Please remember, your e-mail correspondence should never include sensitive information you would not like to share with the general public as e-mail is never a secure environment on the Internet.

"Fraud"

In the case of fraud, criminal action, or abuse (we define "abuse" as the intention or action of harming our company in any way). In such cases as fraud, criminal action or abuse we reserve the right to distribute customer information to parties we deem appropriate for investigation and or prosecution. eg. Law Enforcement,Postal Inspectors,FBI and Secret Service to mention a Few.
