To check the security of your connection, view the lower corner of your browser window as you place your order. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), then SSL is active and the server is secure. You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from http to https. Information that you provide to us is not secured during transmission unless the URL address contains https.

We are not responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any non-public information that you provide us. Any information you prove in the course of reviews or ratings is publicly available. Information that you provide us by email is not encrypted.

No method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, As we all found out this year. Thanks Mark Z! haha… Therefore, we cannot guarantee absolute security of your information. There is always hackers out smarting the smartest, but the probability is rare! You also play a big role in protecting your information.

We are mostly blondes here at FDS, so please bare with us! ;)
