Security and Privacy
Mosaic Art Supply does not share or sell customer data, and our policies and
technology strictly prohibit employee access to your data. Our website is
professionally hosted in a secure hosting center, and our checkout procedure is
encrypted digitally to protect your payment information. Joe Moorman, the
owner, is an engineer who has worked with the
problem of identity theft. Rest assured that we place a top priority on
keeping your information private and secure.
128-bit Encrypted Checkout
Email and most of the Internet aren't secure because they aren't encrypted
. You should never email your credit card number to anyone for this
reason. Then why is it safe to use a credit card to checkout? Like
most shopping sites, our checkout process is encrypted using 128-bit encryption,
and this industry standard ensures that no third party can access your
information in the event that it was intercepted over the web. Our
secure server encryption is provided by Network Solutions.
In order to accept payment via Visa and MasterCard, we are required to have
our security audited and certified annually. The Mosaic Art Supply website
is currently certified to be in compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS)
as well as several other industry standards listed below:
- Visa USA's Cardholder Information Security Program
- Visa International's Account Information Security
- MasterCard International's Site Data Protection (SDP)
- American Express Data Security Standards (DSS)
- Discover Card's DISC program
KEEP YOUR COMPUTER SAFE
Computer viruse can send every keystroke you make to other computers over the Internet.
Make sure that your antivirus software has been updated and periodically run scans of your computer.
Remember, credit card theft is much more likely on a customer's own unprotected computer than
it is on a merchant's website.
