Card Security -
The Internet i=
vast network of computers. Because the data passes from computer to compute=
some Internet shoppers worry that unauthorized persons may intercept the da=
and gain access to credit card numbers, but shopping on a secure site is
actually safer than handing a credit card to a cashier. Taking the steps be=
will lower the chances of interception of your credit card number:
Limit you’re online shopping to Internet merchants, such as FlooringBroker.net, with sites equipped with Se= cure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL prevents unauthorized people from intercepting your data.
Use a browser, such as Netscape Navigato= r or Internet Explorer that supports SSL. These browsers show a symbol in the st= atus bar, such as a key or lock, when you are on a site that uses SSL. Most banks will cover the cost of fraud resulting from unauthorized use of your credit card or may limit your liability. Credit card information collected by Floo= ringBroker.net is encrypted through Secure Sockets Layer before it is transmitted over the Internet.

FlooringBroker.net also reserves the rig= ht to report to law enforcement agencies any activities we reasonably believe = in our sole discretion to be unlawful.
