TEAR websites use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which is an industry standard for internet payments. This means all of your personal and card details are protected using 128 bit encryption when your details are transmitted over the Internet. This makes it virtually impossible for anyone else to discover and use your details. On secure pages you will see a padlock in the lower right or upper right area of your browser window to indicate that SSL is enabled. If you can't see the padlock, or have other concerns, please contact us.
