The store section of the Alien8 Recordings web site offers secure on-line ordering. After the customer has decided what to order, he/she will connect to our secure order form. This part of our site uses industry standard 128 bit SSL encryption for the transmission of all data between the customer's browser and our server, including all personal information and credit card information. This can be verified by viewing viewing the "lock" icon in the browser's status bar (this is only visible when accessing secure pages, after proceeding to checkout). When the icon of the lock appears locked it is an indication that all data passed between the browser and the server is encrypted.
Our SSL encryption is made possible with a certificate provided by Thawte, one of the world's largest certifacte providers, after having reviewed and verified our identity. To view the details and validity of our certificate click on the icon below:
Not only are all data transmitted between the server and the customer's browser encrypted, but the payment processing takes place securely as well. Your credit card information is never stored on our server. It is transmitted directly in real time, again using SSL encryption, to the servers of our payment gateway, which processes the transaction within seconds. This is the most secure way to process credit card transactions over the internet and has the added advantage that you will know the result of the transaction immediately upon placing your order. Again, we never take possession of your credit card information and it is never transmitted or stored without being encrypted.
