|The element 5 order process is protected via a secure connection so that the data sent to the recipient can only be read by the recipient. Important information such as credit card numbers, addresses, etc. is sent to the recipient securely via the Internet.
All of the data entered on the protected pages is encrypted using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol. Our servers support SSL Version 3 and 168-bit Triple DES encryption. The RSA module and SSL sessions feature 1024-bit encryption.
You can tell that SSL is activated if you see a closed padlock in your browser window. If you do not see the padlock icon when you enter our order process from the product vendor's website, then please access the order form by right-clicking the link or button on the vendor's page, and selecting 'Open in new window' from the options displayed. The padlock will then be displayed on this page.
You can also tell that the page is protected if the URL displayed in the address bar begins with "https:".
