Security Procedures & Online Transactions
At GEMPLER'S®, we believe that all Internet transactions should be convenient, reliable and secure. To ensure your trust, we've designed a highly secure ordering process and instituted a Credit Card Guarantee that gives you 100% protection for your credit card transactions on our website.
During the checkout process we protect your information by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to transmit sensitive information such as credit card numbers and addresses. SSL is a transport level technology for authentication and data encryption between our servers and your computer. Additionally, if you choose to have our system remember your credit card for a faster checkout in the future, your credit card information is saved in an encrypted state, which is unreadable the to human eye and can only be processed by our system.
There are several different ways to see if your web browser is in a secure mode. The first way is to look at the bottom of your browser. If you see a small picture of a padlock or a key, you are in secure mode. An open padlock, broken key, or no icon at all, indicates that your web browser may not be in a secure mode. Another way to tell is by looking at the website address in your browser window. Non-secure pages begin with http://. Secure pages begin with https://. The "s" in https:// stands for "secure." Also note, only pages related to the checkout need to have SSL (https://) while all other pages which don't transmit sensitive information will be non-secure (http://).
Our servers reside behind a strong corporate firewall that maintains tight controls on any access to the system from both our internal network and the Internet. Furthermore, both our software and hardware is continually updated to ensure the highest security. Within our company, your information is stored in password-protected, limited-access servers.
This site is tested and certified daily to pass the HACKER SAFE Security Scan. To help address concerns about hacker access to confidential data, the "live" HACKER SAFE mark appears only when a web site meets the HACKER SAFE standard.
Research indicates sites remotely scanned for known vulnerabilities on a daily basis, such as those earning HACKER SAFE certification, can prevent over 99% of hacker crime.
We receive our SSL certificates through VeriSign, which is the leading secure sockets Certificate Authority. VeriSign is the trusted mark of high assurance for Internet security and enable the strongest SSL encryption available to every site visitor.
