Is my credit card safe?
We truly believe that giving your credit card information over a secured internet connection is vastly safer than doing so over a phone, in a phone transaction the person on the other end may or may not be authorized by his or her employer to receive such information, and where the information goes from there is an unknown. At Wigs 4 You & Mane Street Hair the only person that has access to this information is the owner, once your order has been processed the data is then automatically deleted from our server. People buy from Mane Street Hair because of the quality of our products and service. Our website is one aspect of that service, but we would be doing ourselves and our clients a disservice by offering a means of ordering that didn't live up to our standards.
Why do I hear so much about security on the Internet?
It is true that
in the "early" days of the internet, before it became so popular
that there were significant security issues surrounding the internet,
there still is for sites that are not properly secured. With
the popularity of the Internet & E-commerce exploding at such a rate
as it is today incredible advances in security have been made. If a site
properly implements these advances, as we have, it is virtually impenetrable.
Several things conspire to make Internet security a newsworthy item. First, it's new, so people wonder and talk and write about it. Second, as I'm sure you will agree, bad news travels a lot quicker and further than good news.
What's the worst thing that could happen?
Most financial institutions or credit card providers either cover all
charges resulting from unauthorized use of your credit card or limit your
liability to $50. Granted, the time and hassle involved in replacing the card is often
far worse, but financially the impact is kept relatively low.
How do I know if a website is secure?
In order to be accurate, we're going to get a bit detailed here. When buying something on the Internet, there are three things you should to be sure of:1.Data you send is strongly encrypted.
2.The site you're doing business with is the site you think it is.
3.The site processes your credit card and address information in a safe way.
Points 1 and 2 are taken care of by SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), the industry standard security protocol that the Wigs 4 You & Mane Street Hair site uses to communicate with secure browsers like Internet Explorer, Netscape and others. When communicating with a secure server like ours, these browsers encrypt the information you send in a way that is extremely difficult for anyone else to decode. (You don't have to wonder whether your browser supports secure transactions if it doesn't, you won't be able to complete the checkout process.) We've included a visual representation below of what to look for in your browser window to see if you're viewing a site securely.
Which parts of the Wigs 4 You & Mane Street Hair web site are secure?
Most of the activity on our site involves the viewing of
materials we've prepared and made accessible to everyone, so there's no need for these
pages to be "secure". With a product page for example, no security risk exists
because there is no "information" being exchanged. Anyone can access the same
pages by pointing their browser to www.manestreethair.com
The portion of the Mane Street Hair site we've made secure is, not surprisingly, the checkout area. This is where you actually purchase the items you've put into your Shopping Basket. The entire checkout process, from introduction to final confirmation, takes place in a secure environment and begins when you click...
There are several ways to confirm that you're in a secure area. All SSL capable browsers have a symbol to indicate secure mode. Specifically:
|Location||Non - Secure||Secure|
|Netscape 1 thru 3||Lower Left||
|Netscape 4 & up||Lower Left||Open Lock||Closed Lock|
|Microsoft Internet Explorer||Lower Right||No Symbol|
You can also tell when you're in a secure area because the URL to the left
of the colon changes from "http" to "https"
to signify that a SSL protocol is being used to communicate with the
One additional note: some browsers give you a warning when you go from a secure area to a regular area. The aim is worthy enough to ensure that people know when they've left a secure server. But in practice, the message is often a bit startling, and makes it look like you've done something wrong even though you really haven't.
