Security Statement
Security is a top priority at Vanity Shop of Grand Forks, Inc.. We have made every effort and will continue to expand our abilities to ensure that the information transmitted to us online is secure. We expect that the person whose name appears on the credit card or payment service is the one who is placing the order. Vanity Shop of Grand Forks, Inc. uses secure sockets layer (SSL) encryption for securing communications and transactions across the Internet. The SSL protocol uses digital certificates to create and secure confidential communications between the purchaser and our web entity. Data transmitted over an SSL connection cannot be tampered with or forged without the two parties becoming immediately aware of the tampering. A key or padlock icon will be shown in the lower corner of most browser windows to identify the security mode of a browser (for Internet Explorer 7.0 and higher, the padlock will be shown to the right of the address line). When the browser is running in normal mode, the key looks broken or the padlock looks open (for Internet Explorer 7.0 and higher, the padlock will not be shown if you are not within a secure area). Once an SSL connection has been established, the key becomes whole, or the padlock becomes closed, indicating that the browser is in secure mode. SSL is supported in the vast majority of browsers, which means that almost anyone with a browser can benefit from SSL encryption. In addition, it is our policy not to send your credit card number via email. In fact, this is a practice we recommend you adopt in all of your Internet activities. While we implement the above security measures on this site, you should be aware that achieving 100% security is not always possible.
