Click.Shop.Save. Secure Shopping Information
Click.Shop.Save. & Metro Malls Websites use the industry standard security protocol Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to encode sensitive information like your credit card number that passes between you and Click.Shop.Save. SSL works by creating a temporary, shared "key" (sort of a digital code book) that lets only the computers on either end of a transmission scramble and unscramble information. To anyone between the sender and the receiver including all the servers that may relay the message the SSL transmission is indecipherable gibberish.
We feel that SSL makes ordering online just as secure as using your credit cards anywhere else. In fact, after thousands of online transactions worth ten's of thousands of dollars, none of our customers has ever reported misappropriation of a credit card number protected by SSL technology.
Here's a brief explanation how SSL works:
Exchanging all these "hellos" lets your browser and the Web page determine the encryption and compression standards they both support. They also exchange a "session ID," a unique identifier for that specific interaction. Once they have greeted each other, the browser asks for the server's "digital certificate." It's the online commerce version of saying "Can I see some ID, please?"
A Digital Certificate
Sharing the Key
When you surf off a secure site, the master keys you once held in common become useless, since they are good for one session only. When you go back to the secure site again, your computer and the server will go through the whole process again and create another master key.
Knowing when you are on a secure site
Double-clicking on the lock lets you confirm that you're connected to a secure site and view the site's certificate to make sure for yourself that the name on the certificate matches the company you think you're connected to. Sometimes a key may be for the server or ISP the on-line shop is using and not for the company you are dealing directly with, (This is the Case with Click.Shop.Save.) these keys are just as secure as any other. Most browsers can also be set to alert you when you enter and leave a secure site.
Is it Safe?
We believe strongly in the safety of SSL. Encryption technology continues to evolve, however, so Click.Shop.Save. will continuously review ways to improve security, including new, even more bulletproof encryption methods.
