PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION

You are the only one that can protect your information. SportsBraces.com wants to provide you with some security facts to keep in mind when purchasing online:
  • Before you reveal any personally identifying information, find out how it will be used and will it be shared with others.
  • Read the privacy policy and security pages on a company's website- If they don't have one- that is not a good sign.
  • A website should have a physical address and telephone number. If not ask yourself, "What are they hiding?"
  • When you get to the point in the order process where you need to enter in your credit card information, http in the web address should turn to https which means the information you are entering is in a secure place. Most newer sites use https throughout the entire site experience.
  • Use a secure browser when shopping online to guard the security of your transactions. When submitting your purchase information, look for the "lock" icon on the browser's status bar to be sure your information is secure during transmission.
  • To prevent someone from using your billing address and shipping to another shipping address- call your credit card company and give them the shipping addresses that are approved to ship. If SportsBraces.com suspects an order is potentially fraudulent, customer service will ask customers to contact their credit card company and provide an approved alternate address. We will confirm with the credit card company that the address is approved.
