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.
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.
