Security is a priority for us at Jean-Patrique Cookware and we realise it is a major issue for anyone purchasing on the Internet. At Jean-Patrique Cookware we recognise the need for our customers to know that a website is legitimate and that transactions are secure before making any purchase. To answer these issues, our secure server software encrypts your credit card number using a Digital Certificate. The information travels through a secure socket layer (SSL) "pipeline" so it's transmitted directly from your computer to our secure server. SSL is the industry standard security technology used by Microsoft, Netscape, and leading Internet commerce companies - it's one of the most advanced security measures available.
