How Internet Security Works
Sales transactions processed through Bakery
Equipment.com are Guaranteed to be 100% Secure. We've gathered together
some information to give you what you need to know when you're conducting
transactions securely over the internet.
Secure Space Indicators: How do you know when you
are on a secure page?
Look at the URL. URLs (location calls) for
pages in Secure Web Space begin with 'https:' instead of the familiar 'http:'.
Secure Connection Indicators. Look for a locked padlock or other security
indicator in one of your browser's lower corners. Browser Prompts. Your
browser may prompt you that you have requested a secure document, letting you
know you are about to enter Secure Web Space.
Temporary Cookies. In order to make use of this
site, you need to make sure that cookies are enabled in your browser. We use
temporary cookies to maintain the information in your shopping cart.
Data Encryption: You can see it - but you can't
Computers communicate by sending strings of
text back and forth. These strings of text look just like the sentences you
are now reading. If someone were to intercept copies of these text strings
they would be able to read very easily any private information contained
When a document is requested by your browser
while in Secure Web Space, all of the text strings that are sent back and
forth are encoded in such a manner that only your browser and the computer it
is talking to can decipher the code.
A typical secured transmission might look like
Not only is the data unreadable by anyone who
might intercept it, but the ciphers used by today's computers to encrypt data
are so complex that it could take a Pentium computer approximately 25 years of
number crunching to decipher a single message.
Transactions done from within Secure Web Space
using this encryption technology are extremely safe, allowing one to submit
personal information in total privacy and without worry.
The Bottom Line: What effect does all this have
on my shopping?
As you fill your shopping cart your browser may
prompt you from time to time that you are about to enter insecure
information....but don't worry! The majority of the information you submit on
any web site does not need to be secured.
Some of our pages may give you a warning that
the page you are about to enter contains secure AND non-secure items. These
pages are safe and your personal information is part of the 'Secure' portion
of the page. Some of our graphics may prompt this warning.
Rest assured, however, that when you are
finalizing your Bakery Equipment.com order and are prompted to enter personal
information, namely credit card numbers, this information is as safe and
secure as any face-to-face transaction could possibly be...perhaps even more
These tips are meant to explain exactly how to
tell when you have entered secure web space and how worry-free transactions
can be performed over the Internet.
