Providing a safe and secure
online shopping environment is a vital priority at Zalmar.com. We
use the best available security measures to ensure that every
transaction that you make on the World Wide Web through this site is
as safe as possible and no information is ever seen by a third
Zalmar.com uses a technology called Secure Socket Layer (SSL).
This is a feature that is enabled by your browser. The numbers that
you input (credit cards, mailing address, etc.) are immediately
encrypted using a 128 character block that can only be decoded by
our computer. Using this method has proved to be so effective that
in 1997 no credit card information was reported stolen during a
transfer using an SSL connection.
Our security system only works with Web browsers that support
SSL. If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape
Navigator (or Communicator) or America Online then you will see
either a key or a lock appear at the bottom of the screen when you
enter the secure area of our server. That means your browser
supports SSL and all information sent will be secure.
What happens when you send your credit card information to
our server is very similar to what happens when you make a purchase
in a store. We contact the credit card company for confirmation,
much like when a cashier swipes your card at the register. At no
time does an unknown third party ever have access to the information
that we are sending.
