Q: How do I know you are a real organization?
A: To generate an encrypted SSL transmission, a web server requires an SSL Certificate. Checking a website's certificate is good practice that helps you avoid spoof websites, sometimes called "phishing" sites.

To check the certificate, click on the padlock. Your browser will show you the name of the owner of the certificate. This name should match the name of the website operator. Our SSL certificates are issued by a leading certificate authority, GoDaddy.

GoDaddy is Web Trust-compliant, meaning that their business practices and processes have been rigorously audited according to AICPA (American Institute of Certified Public Accountants) guidelines by an independent approved auditor (Ernst & Young). GoDaddy SSL certificates enable a high level of encryption.

They also confirm that a company is a legally accountable organization. To receive a SSL Certificate from GoDaddy, we had to demonstrate to them that we are an existing business, along with our control over the domain you are visiting.

When you shop online, you deserve to know who you are interacting with. Seeing a site with a GoDaddy SSL Certificate, confirms two essential factors: One, that you have a secure SSL (encrypted) link with this website. Two, that this website represents a real organization.
