Can I safely place an order online?

Yes, Waferseals.com is a secure e-commerce site where your credit card information and passwords are entered on secure webpages. A secure web page is a web page which is encrypted. A secure page makes it safe to enter credit card information without concern that someone - other than the intended recipient - will see your information. You can tell if a web page is secure by looking for https:// in the URL once you are in the process of checkout and looking for the little gold lock at the bottom of the web page on old browsers or at the top right on new browsers. See examples below:


In the browser URL line look for https:

The only people who have access to your credit card information are banking institutions and their intermediaries. The website and hosting company do not store the information in a format that can be directly read by people. All the information is received encrypted and remains encrypted.


Even though your account information is safe as it travels across the Internet, what happens if your credit card is lost or stolen, and because of it you become a victim of fraud? Good news: Under consumer protection laws, your liability is limited to $50 in cases of fraudulent charges to your credit card account. (You must notify your credit card company as outlined in your credit card agreement for this protection.)
