To protect your sensitive data, such as your credit card information,
Hopfinger Studio Boutique makes use of SSL technology. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a
protocol developed by Netscape that enables a web browser and a web server to
communicate securely; it allows the web browser to authenticate the web server.
The SSL protocol requires the web server to have a digital certificate installed
on it in order for an SSL connection to be made.
Thanks to SSL-enabled web servers and an SSL certificate, a customer
connecting to a secure website is assured of three things:
- Authentication: The website really is owned by the company that installed
- Message privacy: Using a unique "session key", SSL encrypts all information
exchanged between your web server and your customers, such as credit card
numbers and other personal data. This ensures that personal information cannot
be viewed if it is intercepted by unauthorized parties.
- Message integrity: The data cannot be tampered with over the Internet.
Our customers benefit because they know that by checking the details in the
certificate, they can assure themselves that the website they are dealing with
is in fact the website they want to be dealing with. They also know that a third
party on the Internet cannot intercept their credit card or personal details.
