  Dragonfly Amber.com Security Information
   

The following describes the security measures we take to protect your information on the Internet:

128-Bit Encryption

Dragonfly Amber uses Secured Socket Layer (SSL) for secure transmissions. SSL applies encryption between two communicating applications, such as your PC and our Internet server. When your data is transmitted over the Internet, it is encrypted or "scrambled" at the sending end and then decrypted or "unscrambled" at the receiving end. We use 128-bit encryption, the industry standard.

Encryption

Encryption is a technology that allows secure transmittal of information along the Internet by encoding the transmitted data using a mathematical formula that scrambles it. Without a corresponding "decoder," the transmission would look like nonsense text and would be unusable. It can be used with many applications, including electronic commerce (sending credit card numbers for orders or transmitting account information), email messages and sensitive documents.

Basic encryption involves the transmission of data from one party to another. The sender encodes the data by scrambling it, then sends it on. The receiver must decode the data with the correct "decoder" in order to read and use it.

Cookies

Dragonfly Amber keeps all confidential customer information private. We do not sell, trade or share private information. We only use anonymous cookies which do not contain any personal information about you, and are used strictly for managing the ordering process. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions or concerns.

How to Protect Yourself Online

Here are simple steps you can take to protect yourself from fraud while shopping and online.

  • Verify the URL (address) of the sites you visit. If you're on a secure site, it should start with https (the "s" indicates it is secure.) A padlock image also should appear at the bottom of your browser window.
  • Install anti-virus software and update it regularly with the most current version.
  • Use separate passwords for your Internet accounts and make them difficult for others to guess. Change passwords frequently.
  • Use the logoff button to end a secure session instead of closing your browser.
  • Only open email messages sent by people you know.
  • Never send personal or financial information by email. (Remember, we will never ask you to provide personal information via email.)
  • Review your order confirmations, credit card and bank statements and report any unusual activity immediately.
  • Review the security measures recommended by the Better Business Bureau, the U.S. Government and others at the following sites:
