To ensure that your online shopping with theabilitiesinme.com is safe and secure we use a number of security features. When you enter the checkout area of our site the web pages are 128 bit SSL encrypted. SSL is an acronym for secure sockets layer and 128 bit is the level of encryption. SSL protects transmissions over the World Wide Web from eavesdropping by hackers by encrypting the data while it gets transmitted over the Internet. Some browsers refer to the certificate as TLS (Transport Layer Security), which is the successor to SSL.
SSL works through a certificate, issued by a Certificate Authority (CA), that authenticates the theabilitiesinme.com domain. The theabilitiesinme.com certificate was issued by Thawte who verified our identity and our status as a limited company. With this certificate, secure transmissions on the server are certified to be secure. All modern web browsers support SSL, and we use this protocol to obtain confidential user information, such as your address and credit card details. Web pages that require an SSL connection start with "https://" instead of "http://".
