Here at Educational Video Network, we
take your security very seriously. You
will notice that for the duration of your visit the address of the Web site
will begin with "https". This is known as SSL encryption, also commonly
denoted as a padlock at the bottom right corner of some Web browsers. This
128-bit SSL encryption protects the information that you communicate to our
Web site during its traversal of the Internet. However, the data will exist in
an unencrypted form on the sending and receiving machines. These are the
machines that blackhats generally attack to gather personal information.
Therefore, we strongly encourage you to perform the following safety
measures to decrease your risk when shopping at any site on the Internet. |
Always make sure that the address of the Web site where you are entering
sensitive information begins with "https". Any Web site that only has "http"
performs no encryption of the data between the client and the server.
Never use standard email to transmit sensitive information such as credit
numbers. Unless you specifically configure your mail client to encrypt
messages, email is a plain-text transmission, which can be read by anyone on
your network segment. So, if you do send us order information via email, we
would ask that you either call or fax the credit card numbers.
your browser after entering sensitive information at a Web site. A
well designed Web site will cause the cookie that a Web site uses to match
your requests with your computer to be removed when your browser is closed.
If you do not do this, the server may assume that the next person that uses
that browser window is you. A poorly designed Web site will not clear cookie
until it is manually deleted; therefore, we recommend that you delete
your cookies regularly.
Always use the most current releases of browsers.
Current releases almost always repair security flaws that were present in
previous versions. Choose a browser that you can trust. Due to the numerous
security exploits present in other popular browsers, we recommend Mozilla's FireFox.
Pay close attention to the address of the Web site before entering
information. Malignant Web sites are frequently identical to the authentic
Web site with the addresses being only a character difference.
Find out the
security practices of the company that you are dealing with. Find out if they
store full credit card numbers and if these numbers are encrypted. Our company
all sensitive data and stores it on machines that cannot be reached by
outside of our network.
Following these simple steps will decrease your
chances of becoming a victim.
