Frequently Asked Questions - Security

How secure is your site?

Restaurant Equipment World was one of the first in the industry to make the leap onto the internet. In 1996 our current company President Brad Pierce, created our e-commerce division and website. Since then, our reputation has hinged on keeping your information safe — and continues to do so today. We employ a 256-bit encrypted connection via VeriSign™. Essentially, this means that your information is protected when traveling from your computer to our servers. We pride ourselves on security, integrity, and confidentiality.

So how can you tell if a site is secure?

When you are in the shopping cart, but before you put in any credit card information, check to see that "https://" is in your browser's address bar. Because the majority of a site does not need to be secure, it may not show up until right before you enter sensitive information. Additionally, there should be a closed lock or other way to tell how it is secured — ideally, it should be through a TLS 1.0 (or higher) 256-bit encrypted connection.

Information does not only need to be transferred securely, but stored securely as well.
