— For Sound Feelings and affiliated companies. —
Your Online Purchase is Extremely Safe and Risk-Free.
All Sound Feelings online ordering is done through our dedicated remote secure server. This server uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) data encryption, the industry standard for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all your personal information including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read as it travels over the internet. It can only be unscrambled by the site that receives it. Breaking this type of encryption is highly unlikely. In fact, it’s much safer than physically giving your credit card to someone. There are no receipts or carbons left over, and the only people who see your number are you and the merchant who receives it. On the remote chance that fraud has occurred, Sound Feelings will reimburse your loss for the first $50.00 and your credit card company will reimburse you for the rest.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Technology.
SSL or Secure Sockets Layer is a level of encryption, developed by Netscape, to scramble information sent to a web server. A Secured Sockets Site is a web site which incorporates this technology on their server and in their important documents such as corporate databases or online order forms. This means that when a consumer initiates a transaction, the software sets up a secure key code that is used by both the consumer’s machine and the web server to ensure that no one can tap into the transaction somewhere down the line. If they do, all they receive is unintelligible garbage rather than a completed order form and the consumer’s credit card information.
Authorize.Net Transaction System.
Authorize.Net is the electronic interface that Sound Feelings has selected to communicate between our secure server and your credit card company. This link of the transaction occurs on a dedicated point to point private connection, which is not accessible through the internet at all.
At a Glance, You Can Tell if You Are in “Secure Mode.”
Our site is secure. And our shopping cart is also secure. When you’re ready to pay for your order online, you will be automatically transferred to our dedicated remote secure server, https://www.modularmerchant.com/, so that your personal information will be protected. You can confirm that you are in secure mode by looking at the website address at the top of your browser window. It should begin with “https://” rather than the standard “http://.” (The “s” stands for “secure.”) Once you have verified that you are in “secure mode,” you can feel safe to go forward with your online credit card or check debit purchase.
