When you use secure portions of our site or proceed to our online checkout, either a solid key or a locked padlock icon will appear in the lower right of your browser window. This icon insures that your transaction session is secured through SSL.

Our use of Cookies

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser. Cookies allow us to provide features such as storage of items in your shopping bag between visits.

The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of our web site’s best features, so we recommend that you leave them turned on.
