As part of the engine used by the Online Store there are secure processes built in. Specifically the engine ensures;
- Every order has a unique number
- Every order is logged in a robust database
- No credit card details are store on our databases
- All your payment details are retrieved by us in a 256 bit SSL encrypted session
- Confirmation emails are sent to you the customer.
Credit Card Security
Once you have confirmed your order, you will enter your credit card details via a 256bit SSL secured web page. This will enable us to process your order with the minimum delay.
There are visual clues on screen that tell you when you have entered a secure environment.
On your browser window lower status bar,
the key or padlock icon,
which is normally open or absent, appears as a solid icon.
Store security is one of our highest priorities. The Makers Mark website uses technology called SSL - Secure Sockets Layer. This means at the checkout, our servers and your PC encrypt (scramble) everything that you enter into your computer, such as credit card details, billing and delivery address. Because it is encrypted, other computers are unable to make sense of it, therefore keeping this information private.
This is an AES-256 256 bit encryption.
