Secure order guarantee
Reading Glasses To Go understands your concerns over Internet security. Because we share your concerns, we've worked closely with web site engineers to develop a highly secure online ordering process. We want you to be able to shop and order with confidence. We offer a Secure Order Guarantee that gives you 100% protection for your credit card transactions at readingglasses.com.
We guarantee that your credit card information will be safe when you place an order at readingglasses.com. Our Secure Order Guarantee means that you'll never have to pay any money related to unauthorized charges to your credit card account, if those charges result from a transaction at readingglasses.com. You're always protected when you shop our site.
Here's how the guarantee works: If you're ever a victim of credit card fraud, the Fair Credit Act specifies that your credit card company can hold you liable for no more than $50 in fraudulent charges to your account. With our Secure Order Guarantee, you'll be reimbursed for any amount up to $50 billed to you by your credit card company for unauthorized charges to your account, if those charges result from an order you've placed on our secure server. For this protection, you must promptly notify your credit card company of any fraudulent charges and follow the procedures for doing so as outlined in your credit card agreement. Your credit card information is safe at readingglasses.com.
The secure order process
Our software and hardware, in conjunction with features built into popular browser software, provides advanced security for your online purchases. The following section describes how the secure order process works, from start to finish.
Starting your order
Every order at readingglasses.com is secure, and clicking a Checkout button on the Shopping Cart page is all it takes to get started. The security features are automatic - you don't need to do anything special to invoke them.
Making a Positive ID
Once you've clicked the Checkout button, your browser looks for a digital certificate to confirm that it is valid. We use Thawte software to enable the use of digital certificates. For your security, the verification process happens in the background every time you place an order on our site.
Entering Secure Mode
Next, your computer and our server begin communicating in secure mode, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format.
After your browser has entered secure mode, we'll ask you to enter, or if you're a registered shopper, to confirm, 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. Our site uses the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol and 128-bit strong encryption to maintain the highest level of security.
My order is complete, what happens next?
Security measures continue even after you've placed your order, as we process your order on a highly secure internal system that is inaccessible via the Internet.
Security: Watching it work
The web address will begin with "http://" in standard, non-secure mode and "https://" in secure mode. The "s" stands for "secure."
Most web browser use a lock symbol to indicate that the connection is secure.
