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
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.
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!
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.
