This website takes every precaution to protect our users' information. Our shopping cart incorporates industry-standard secure server software (Secure Socket Layers / SSL) provided by Verisign into sensitive sections of our store. All online transactions at CompactAppliance.Com are handled using this encryption technology. When you enter your credit card number into the order form, it is transmitted across the internet in an encrypted (scrambled) form, then decoded when it gets out. For added security, we also encrypt the credit card number when it is stored on disk.

There are two ways to make sure you are browsing secure pages. Both Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator indicate secure modes with a symbol - the image of a closed padlock. You will know the information is protected if the closed-lock symbol pops into view in the lower right or left-hand corner of your screen while you are checking it out. You can also verify secure pages by checking the address, or URL, listed on the scroll bar. If you spot an "s"after the "http" at the beginning of the address, you know that you're browsing in a secure environment.
Federal Law Limits Your Liability
Federal law limits an individual's liability if their credit card information
should ever fall into the wrong hands. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act
of 1975, you may dispute the charges on your account with your credit card
company and temporarily withhold payment while they investigate the situation.
Even if your creditor disagrees that unauthorized purchases were made, you're
generally only liable for the first $50 in fraudulent charges.

different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy
