Browsers and Internet Security
Any time you enter an order or provide personal information such as an account number or password), we encrypt it using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL protects information as it crosses the Internet. To support this technology, you need an SSL-capable browser such as the latest versions of Microsoft's Internet Explorer or Mozilla's Firefox . These browsers will activate SSL automatically whenever you sign in to your Price Splitters account.
You can tell if you are visiting a secure area within a website by looking at the symbol on your browser screen. If you are using Firefox or Internet Explorer, you will see either a lock or a key. When the symbol appears unbroken or the padlock is in the locked position, your session connection is taking place via a secure server.
If you need a strong encryption browser, you can go to the Mozilla Web site or the Microsoft Web site to download the latest Firefox or Internet Explorer browser. We do not recommend the use of beta browser versions.
