Because AbuGarcia.com takes credit card information security seriously, we have implemented a variety of technical and procedural controls to ensure transactions on our site remain private and protected.
Secure Socket Layers (SSL)
To ensure the information you provide online is secure during transmission, we employ leading edge encryption technology and Secure Socket Layers (SSL) while processing any personal information you supply. These controls are certified by Thawte®, a leading Internet security company.
To verify our Thawte® certificate, click on the image to the left. You can also review our security certificate using your browser by clicking on the closed lock or solid key image at the bottom of your browser on any of the secure pages on our site. This will display our site security information. If you have any additional questions, please contact us.
To ensure you have the maximum protection available, we strongly advise downloading and installing the latest version of your browser.
Do we use "cookies"?
To function correctly and offer the best possible user experience, the AbuGarcia.com site requires your Internet browser to accept cookies.
In order to provide our customers with powerful functionality, we developed our site using Microsoft's Active Server Page Technology (ASP). One of the benefits of using ASP is that we are able to temporarily store information about your visit (i.e. items in the Shopping Cart, sizes selected, etc.) on our server - a far more efficient method than passing information back and forth over the Internet between our server and your browser.
How do cookies work?
Cookies are files containing bits of text information which our server sends to your computer and vice versa (exactly like all other information received when surfing the Internet, except it is not displayed). This allows our server to communicate with your browser and maintain your preferences to enrich your unique shopping experience. The text information on your cookie correlates with the unique session number assigned to you when first accessing our site.
Cookies are nothing more than small strings of text and are incapable of doing anything malicious to your computer, and can be read only by the site which originally delivered the cookie. Cookies do not contain any information retrieved from your computer; they only contain information supplied during your specific visit to the site sending the cookie.
