Is a credit card transaction of this type really safe from fraud? The short answer is "Yes." The long answer is... Most consumers do not realize that security protocols and technologies currently exist to protect them. Most of the reported credit card fraud over the Internet has involved people emailing their credit card account numbers to merchants, or websites accepting credit cards without using any security protocols.
SSL Server Certificate Poles, Inc. uses is an SSL server certificate. What's a server certificate? A company wanting to do business on the Worldwide Web must prove to a trusted third party, such as VeriSign Inc. or Thawte Consulting, that they really exist and have the right to use a particular domain name (Internet address). An SSL Certificate is then assigned to that business that authenticates their domain. When a customer uses a modern web browser (such as Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer), the browser can automatically check the business's authenticity. If the browser can't verify that VeriSign or Thawte vouches for the business, it will refuse to start an encrypted session, or at least pop up a window warning the customer that the browser can't determine authenticity. The encryption mechanism used for SSL certificates is so secure, the U.S. government prohibits its export outside the United States.
So shopping with us at Poles, Inc. is very safe.
