The security of the information regarding your order is very important
to us. We use the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol to protect the
security of your on-line order information. SSL technology encrypts
your order information to protect it from being decoded by anyone other
than the Bookstore. Once you enter the checkout page your computer will
begin communicating with our server in secure mode. You can tell that
you are in secure mode by the following:
- The "http" in the web address will be replaced by "https", indicating that you've reached a secure area of the website.
on the browser, you will see either a padlock (Microsoft Internet
Explorer, AOL, Netscape Communicator) or a solid key (Netscape
Navigator) in the lower section of the browser window.
browsers that use the Secure Socket Layer protocol are able to order
through the Bookstore website. If your browser does not support SSL,
you can get an upgrade at Microsoft's or Netscape's home page.
