How can I trust you with my credit card number?

Many people are concerned about the security of information in an online environment. This is particularly true of personal and financial information.

BARF World Inc. is entrusted with confidential information in the real-world environment and has built a reputation of trust with its clients, customers, and partners. Information given to BARF World Inc. in confidence in the real world is held to be confidential. We do not release any information unless you instruct us to do so.

This policy also holds true in the virtual world of the Internet. BARF World Inc. has taken extraordinary steps to make sure any sensitive information, such as your credit card number, cannot be accessed by anyone else.

Below is a list of the security measures in place at the BARF World Inc. Web site:

SSL (Secured Socket Layer)

This is the standard encryption method for securing data accessed through the Internet. If you buy airline tickets, order software, books, music, or anything else online, you are already using SSL technology.

Data Encryption

All data that is transferred from your computer to the BARF World Inc. server is highly encrypted, that is, in code. This means your information cannot be read without the key for the code. Your data stays encrypted while being stored on the BARF World Inc. server and is only decrypted when it reaches your screen. If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer, look for the small padlock icon at the lower left of you screen. If you are using Netscape Navigator, the broken key icon at the lower left corner of the window becomes solid when you are at a secure site. When you see these icons, it means the page is SSL encrypted and your data is secure.

Case Sensitive Passwords

All passwords support a combination of upper and lower case characters. This feature increases the number of characters possible for any one password. For example, even if the password is a common word (not recommended), an unusual pattern of capital and lower case letters would make it more secure.

Locks and Limits

The server on which the BARF World Inc. site is located has built in safeguards to detect brute-force attacks. This means that if a hacker is trying to get unauthorized access, he is kicked off the system after a limited number of attempts.
