Is Your Website Secure To Order From?
Last Updated: 06/18/2009

Yes! We are secure!

We have a verified128-bit SSL certificate which provides industry standard data encryption of information transferred from your computer to the website. SSL encryption keeps your personal information (name, address, credit card information, etc) safe and away from the identity thieves and hackers!

What is SSL 128 bit encryption?

The 128-bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) gives you the highest level of protection possible whenever you use credit cards or make other financial or confidential transactions over the Internet.

The Internet Explorer 128-bit High Encryption is the highest level of protection possible for all your Internet communications, including credit card use and financial transactions.

Note: High encryption is included in the latest versions of the Internet Explorer browser. If you are running an earlier version of Internet Explorer without 128-bit encryption, you can download the latest version of Internet Explorer from the Internet Explorer Download page here.

What about warnings or errors about the Secure Certificate?

Your personal Security settings will determine what warnings you see.

Depending on how your security settings are setup in your Browser, you may also see information about our Certificate when you enter the secure directories. This information will usually include the Dates that the Certificate is valid for, the site name that the Certificate has been issued to, and the Certificate Authority (or 'CA') that issued the Certificate. You can also usually view the Certificate to see information about the various parties, including MountDirect and our CA.

The most common warning is that you have not previously chosen to Trust the authority. This is a normal warning if you haven't already purchased anything online from a Merchant who's certificate was issued by a Certificate Authority that you haven't told your browser to trust from now on. Of course, you may well have no errors, warnings or information screens at all - again, largely depending on the way you've got your security settings set in your Browser.

In any case, the encryption level and the security is the same whether you've got your settings low (don't warn me about anything) or very high (warn and inform me about everything). Either way, your data is still encrypted and still secure.
