All of our shopping cart and checkout pages are secure.¬†¬†¬†
Here is how you can tell:
1) Check the web page URL
Normally, when browsing the web, the URLs (web page addresses) begin with the letters "http".¬† However, over a secure connection the address displayed should begin with "https" - note the "s" at the end.
Try it! - Visit our home page (http://www.healingcrystals.com).¬† Note the URL begins with the "http" meaning this page is not secure.¬† Now, click the link in the upper-right hand corner to go to our "Shopping Cart".¬† Notice the change in the URL?¬† It now begins with "https", meaning the user name and password typed in will be encrypted before sent to our server.
2) Check for the "Lock" icon
There is a de facto standard among web browsers to display a "lock" icon somewhere in the window of the browser (NOT in the web page display area!)¬† For example, Microsoft Internet Explorer displays the lock icon in the lower-right of the browser window:¬† As another example, Mozilla's FireFox Web Browser displays the lock icon in the lower-left corner.
