Your transactions are 100% protected from
Internet and credit card fraud.
Ministry Ideaz is dedicated to providing a secure on-line environment. We
believe that your online shopping experience should be convenient, fun, and most
of all, safe. While browsing our web store, you can rest assured that we have
your security in mind. You will notice the little "padlock" icon in
the bottom corner of your web browser. You will also notice that our website
starts with https (not just htttp). The
"S" stands for "secure." We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer)
technology, the most powerful encryption technology available in the marketplace
Therefore, all of your personal information, including credit card number, name,
and address is encrypted, so that the information cannot be read as it travels
over the Internet. Our servers that receive your order sit behind an electronic
firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private
information is available only to authorized computers.
If you use PayPal, we here at Ministry Ideaz don't even see the credit card
details. All we get is a notice about your order, and that the payment was
received by our bank and deposited in our account. This is different that
using a credit card in a store where the merchant has a copy of the receipt
(which could inadvertently fall into the wrong hands). So all in all, using your
credit card in our web store can be safer than using it in a restaurant or a gas
station. We encourage you to carefully review PayPal's Data
Security and Encryption page if you have further questions.
