Security certificate

All the information transmitted between you and is confidential and is encrypted when sent online. For this purpose we hold a security certificate that allows the encryption of exchanged information and the certification of the owner of the website. This certificate is issued by the leading certifying entity: godaddy. It has the same security, functionality and characteristics as on-line banking services.

What is a security certificate?

It is a set of electronic documents issued by a certifying entity that enables the transmitted information to be encrypted and the source of said information to be identified.

For the certificate to be trustworthy, the certifying entity must be a trusted body capable of certifying the source of the information.

What is the SSL protocol?

The SSL protocol is an information exchange protocol that allows the authentication, confidentiality and integration of the data sent online to be guaranteed.

In order for the SSL protocol to protect the information hosted on a website, it is necessary to install a security certificate on this website.

The security certificate enables the encryption of the information exchanged and identifies the source of this information. These two techniques are the principles on which the SSL protocol is based.

The SSL protocol is currently the most widespread method to guarantee said information exchange. When you browse SSL-protected sites using Netscape or Internet Explorer, you can see that a key or a padlock appears at the bottom of the browser screen. The same thing happens in Mozilla Firefox's browser bar. If you double click on the key or padlock, the certificate details will be displayed.

SSL protocol-protected website addresses start with https://. For example:

Data protected during the registration and purchase processes

The registration screen, where the customer sends their details to, is encrypted. The customer’s details are therefore fully protected and only can access them. The payment process screens are also protected by 128-bit encryption. Therefore, from the moment the user starts entering their personal details in the initial phase of the payment process, until the payment by card has been completed, all the data entered by the user are 128-bit encrypted and are therefore completely secure.

By adopting this system, can receive payments from any VISA or MASTERCARD user, making shopping easier. Credit card fraud is a crime and will prosecute any person that carries out a fraudulent transaction at our online store.
