All online transactions at Yahoo! Stores are handled with industry-standard SSL encryption.
When you enter your credit card number into the order form on SmokeSign.com, it is transmitted across the Internet in an encrypted (scrambled) form, then decoded when it gets to us.
For added security, SmokeSign.com through Yahoo Stores also encrypt the credit card number when it is stored on disk, and when we forward it to the merchant.
If you are not the kind of person who worries about being hit by lightning as you're crossing the street, you probably don't have to worry that your credit card number will be intercepted on the way to a secure Web site.
According to CNN,
"The prevalent opinion...is that on-line credit card use is actually no riskier for consumers than traditional "low-tech" transactions."
We order products online all the time, both as a company and as individuals. When we use a credit card to buy something online, we feel at least as safe as we would using one in a store or restaurant.
Why does it say I am being redirected to an insecure page?
After you place the order, we send you back to whatever page you last viewed in your site (or some other page you specify). The order form is secure, and the regular site pages aren't.
Whenever you redirect from a secure to an insecure page, the browser issues a warning. And unfortunately, all the security warnings issued by the browser sound equally terrifying, whether they are really important or (as in this case) not.
If you worry about this message, you can relax in that your credit card info was not exposed. The message is merely about the page they get sent to after ordering.
If you still feel uneasy about ordering through the internet, please call us with your order at 1-888-922-9531 (toll free).
