SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers.

Although SSL technology is a proven way to secure information sent through the World Wide Web, anyone, in general, can only guarantee that it's 99.9% secure. This is because the possibility of compromising secure data (however small 0.1% might seem) will always exist.
For online purchases, it is highly recommended that you DO NOT pay with a debit card. Debit cards do not carry the same protections as do credit cards. When you pay with a credit card online, make a committed effort to follow up on your credit card activity. Most credit card issuers will call you to verify online purchases if the purchase raises any red flag. Even though most credit card issuers will guarantee zero liability for fraudulent charges to your account, you must still be cautious to ensure that your credit is not abused.
The Bottom Line: Credit card companies are aware of these risks, and usually implement extra safety measures to protect you. If you are a responsible credit card holder and know how to check up on your credit activity, then we advise that you can make purchases on the World Wide Web with 100% confidence (no 0.1% doubt about it!)
