Credit Card Security

Point In Space protects such personal information as your name, address, and credit card number by transferring it over a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) line. This protocol ensures your information is encrypted and cannot be read by others as it travels over the Internet. The secure mode begins as soon as you initiate your order. You should see a locked padlock icon at the bottom of your browser window to indicate you are on a Secure Socket Layer Line. You can also verify you are in secure mode by looking at the URL window in your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from “http” to “https.”

After we receive the data at Point In Space, it is stored on a secure server and steps are taken to ensure that your information cannot be accessed from outside the company. The Point In Space employees who process your order are the only people with access to your personal information.
