take your Privacy & Security VERY Seriously!
We understand that shopping online can feel risky and uncertain. Where does your
information go? How can you be sure that someone out there with a computer can't
intercept your credit card numbers? Because your credit card security is our
highest priority, The Onion Store has taken several steps to ensure that your
payment information is processed confidentially and accurately.
The Onion Store
servers use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL),
an advanced encryption technology that works with Netscape Navigator (versions
2.0 and above), Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 and above), and AOL
(AOL 3.0 and above). This encryption makes it absolutely impossible for
unauthorized parties to read any information that you send us.
So, there's no
risk! In fact, shopping online at The Onion Store is statistically safer than
using your credit card at a restaurant or department store. Give it a try and
see for yourself. We're sure you'll change your mind about the security of
Internet shopping, and find yourself appreciating the fun and convenience of
shopping at home. This site also has security measures in place to protect the
loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We use a
secure server for orders and any application type forms to protect your privacy.
This information is not sold or given to any third parties.
