Residential Landscape Lighting & Design Security Statement
Residential Landscape Lighting & Design understands your concerns regarding Internet security. Residential Landscape Lighting & Design's secure software encrypts all of your personal information including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet. The Internet is as secure as using your credit card in a store or over the phone. However, in the event of any unauthorized use of your credit card, most banks either cover all charges that result from the unauthorized use, or may limit your liability to just $50.00. This is how the Secure Server Works:
1) Starting Your Order:
Every order at www.residential-landscape-lighting-design.com is secure. All data submitted via the checkout form is encrypted using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption.
2) Making a Positive ID:
After you've selected items to purchase, you'll be prompted to continue your order by clicking on the "Checkout", located on your "Shopping Cart" page. At this point, your browser looks for a "site certificate" to confirm that it is communicating with www.residential-landscape-lighting-design.com. Once a positive ID is made, your order continues.
3) Entering "Secure Mode":
At this point, your computer and our server begin communicating in secure mode, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format through an online merchant account supported by Authorize.net. We are ready to ask you for your credit card information. The encryption features of browser software are exceptionally powerful and ensure the security of this data as it is transmitted to our server.
4) Your Order Is Complete:
What Happens Next? The credit card numbers are placed in the SQL database on the Residential Landscape Lighting & Design web server. A user must have logon privileges on the web server (requiring a password) to be able to access the database, which also requires a password.
Order information, including the credit card numbers, is retrieved by the staff at Residential Landscape Lighting & Design through a web interface. This interface challenges the user for a password. All communications during these sessions are encrypted again using SSL. No credit card numbers are ever sent via e-mail, due to the fact that e-mail is not secure.
5) A secure website can be identified by https:// or a padlock symbol?
The standard, unsecured URL address begins "http://". When you enter secure mode, the beginning of the URL address will change to "https://"; the "s" stands for secure. You'll also see a padlock symbol at the bottom of your browser window when the browser is in secure mode.
With Residential Landscape Lighting & Design, from the moment the customer clicks on the Complete Order button, the credit card information is transmitted via encrypted gateway page directly to the credit card processing bank where the transaction is processed. When the order confirmation page appears on the monitor screen, you'll see both the "https://" in the address bar at the top and the padlock symbol at the bottom right hand side of the screen.
