Here are some useful suggestions for using websites for paying for products.

  • Make sure you download the most recent version of of your browser to take advantage of advances in encryption capabilities to protect your personal information as it is transmitted over the internet.
  • Watch for the padlock icon on the status bar at the bottom of your browser window, which indicates the site is secure.
  • Before submitting personal information to a site, read their privacy policy to find out how the information may be used and whether it will be sold or shared with other businesses. If you don't like what you read, shop elsewhere
  • Don't provide personal information such as address, telephone number, bank account number, or email address unless you know who you are providing the information to and why it is being requested and how it will be used
  • Carefully review your credit card and bank statement each month for unauthorized charges and notify your credit card company or bank immediately if you notice any charges you didn't authorize
  • Clean your computer with free online software that detects spyware (such as Spyware Doctor) and install a firewall, like the free version of Zone Alarm (www.zonelabs.com) or Norton Internet Security to ensure that sites you shop at don't install Spyware on your computer.
  • Ensure no one else uses your computer while you are logged onto the site. If you have your logon to our site enabled so that the password and username are filled in automatically, ensure that no one uses your computer. You are responsible for transactions should this occur
