Security Measures
We work hard to protect the security of your information by using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, the current standard for secure transactions over the Internet. There are some simple measures that you can take to promote protection of your information. First, to help protect the security of your account, do not share your password with others. Also, remember to “log-off” after using any of our on-line services when you have finished using the website. While Garden Opus strives to protect your information by using SSL and through measures to protect our system, such security cannot be ensured. Consequently, Garden Opus does not ensure or warrant the security of information you transmit, and you do so at your own risk.

 

What is Encryption?

Encryption is a process by which we use software to scramble sensitive information while it is in transit to Garden Opus.

Please take a moment to read about the steps that we have taken to help protect your information and make your online transmissions safer. We also invite you to review the steps you can take to help protect yourself further.

 

How Does Encryption Work?

Encryption is based on a key that has two different parts. The public part and the private part. The public part of the key is distributed to those you want to communicate with. The private part is for the recipient's use only.

When you send personal information to gardenopus.com, you use Garden Opus's public key to encrypt your personal information. That means, if at any point during the transmission your information is intercepted, it is scrambled and very difficult to decrypt. Once Garden Opus receives your encrypted personal information, we use the private part of our key to decode it.

What Kind of Encryption Software Does Garden Opus Use?

Garden Opus currently uses the industry-standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption. But we continue to keep up with the current technologies in order to provide the best security for our customers.

 

What Information Does Garden Opus Encrypt?

Garden Opus encrypts all personal information you give us when you place an order online. Remember, if you feel uncomfortable providing any of this information online, please feel free to call us at 630-484-4730.

 

How Safe is Encryption?

Providing encrypted information online is as safe as doing it over the phone.

 

Privacy Policy Changes
gardenopus.com may update this Privacy Policy from time to time to better serve you. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy periodically.
