E-Commerce Security

Applerouth Tutoring Services takes every step possible to ensure a safe and secure e-commerce experience.

Storing Your Data

The best way for us to protect your information is to not store it at all! When you choose to save your financial information on our website, we actually store it with Authorize.net, the Visa-owned industry leader in credit card processing. Your most private information is never saved on our website for even a second.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

When you send information, like your credit card number, through the Internet, it hops from computer to computer on the way to its destination. That means every computer on the way to the final website gets a chance to view your most sensitive data. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt your data from the moment it leaves your computer until it reaches our website. It is the same technology your bank uses to enable safe online banking. Just look for the padlock symbol at the top or bottom of your browser.

Firewall Defense

Our website servers are physically located in an off-site data center with 24x7 monitoring and state-of-the-art security. Access to the server over the Internet is restricted by a firewall, a defensive technology that prevents malicious access. Your data is also protected from exposure by the fact that once your credit card number is saved with Authorize.net, there is no way to read it back out again. Not even by us!

Constant Reviews

Security on the Internet is a moving target. We are constantly reviewing our procedures and testing our systems using the most up-to-date methods. In addition, we enlist 3rd-party security vendors to perform independent audits of our security and ensure we are in compliance with the strict regulations set by the credit card companies.
