How can I tell if a web page is secure?
Anytime a web page asks you for sensitive information, you need to be able to identify whether the page is secure or not. There are two general indicators that let you know whether a web page is secure:
1. Check the web page URL: Normally, when browsing the web, the URLs (web page addresses) begin with the letters "http". However, over a secure connection the address displayed should begin with "https" - note the "s" at the end.
2. Check for the "Lock" icon: There is a de facto standard among web browsers to display a "lock" icon somewhere in the window of the browser (not in the web page display area). For example, some Microsoft Internet Explorer versions and Mozilla's FireFox Web Browser displays the lock icon in the lower-right corner of the browser window. The lock icon is not just a picture: click (or double-click) on it to see details of the site's security.
Does Pacific Mountain Store credit card information?
After the credit card is processed through a secure SSL connection, all credit card details are automatically discarded, regardless if the credit card transaction was set successful or not.
