Website and Credit Card Security
We take website and credit card security extremely seriously, and always endeavour to provide a secure safe platform on which to conduct online transactions. http://www.tritonhearing.co.nz/ uses the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which encrypts your information as it is transmitted over the internet. This encryption scrambles details such as credit card number, billing details and delivery address so that generally, other computers are unable to decipher the information, ensuring privacy and security. To make sure you are accessing a secure server, check for the unbroken key or closed lock symbol located generally either at the bottom left or top right of your browser window. If it appears, then SSL is active. You can double check this by looking at the URL as well. If SSL is active, then the first characters of that line will read ‘https’ rather than just ‘http’. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Ensure you logout when you have finished visiting http://www.tritonhearing.co.nz/, especially if you access http://www.tritonhearing.co.nz/ from a shared computer.
