The JLF Shopping Cart uses Microsoft's B-Central enterprise solutions
to for all credit card and user information transmissions over the
internet. B-Centtral supports industry-standard 128-bit SSL encryption
and Microsoft's .net passport features.
When you enter your credit card number into the order form, it is
transmitted across the Internet in an encrypted (scrambled) form and
not decoded until we receive it. For added security, we also encrypt
the credit card number when it is stored on disk and when we forward
it to the merchant.
Shopping online is considered extremely low-risk. According to CNN,
"The prevalent opinion... is that online credit card use is actually
no riskier for consumers than traditional 'low-tech' transactions."
You should feel as safe as you would using a credit card in a store or
restaurant, if not more so.
