Security F.A.Q.



Is your shopping cart secure?  Yes!  Anytime you are entering sensitive information, the web site is secure. We use VeriSign for all credit card transactions for your safety and ours.

How can I tell when it is secure? There is an image of a closed padlock usually found at the bottom of the browser. When the lock is displayed as closed, your data on that web page is encrypted. An open padlock means it is not secure. Alsonmotice it says HTTPS rather than HTTP. The "S" is for secure.

            {secure and unsecure}

My computer is telling me there is a Security Problem with your website, is this true?   Yes and no.   ABC Waterbed Outlet has the latest security keys installed and tested and it works for almost everyone, however we have found that some older browsers can have problems if they are not up to date.

If you don't have the time right now to upgrade ( who has time these days? ) You can order several other ways including ordering online and then calling in your credit card number.

Another way is to order over the telephone, call 1-757-390-2750 Monday through Friday 12:00 - 4:00pm EST for either of these methods.

Another method is to place the order online and then print it out for faxing or mailing to us. This method is very convenient for those that wish to pay by check. Remember, the bank hold personal checks for up to ten days delaying your order. Cashiers checks or money orders are faster.

How private is the information I supply?   Very!   ABC Waterbed Outlet respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information about yourself. We don't collect personal information, including your email address as you browse.

We do need your personal information to ship the products you purchase or answer the questions you have emailed us. We safeguard this information and it is not shared outside the company (i.e. third parties). We simply do not abuse our customers.

Will I get unsolicited emails?  No.  We do send emails relating to your purchases or in reply to questions. We do not send you junk mail and we do not share your email address with third parties.
