Secure and Safe Shopping
At Tools Plus we take security seriously. All the way from browsing right down to the final transaction. We shop online too, and we know how important your personal information is to you.
We've been in the e-commerce business since its earliest days and have made it our business to continually monitor and adapt to the latest security concerns and policies. We want your shopping experience to be comfortable and worry-free, because that's how we like to shop too!
By partnering with Yahoo!, we are able to offer you the highest levels of transaction security available. Yahoo! is one of the oldest and most trusted names on the web and their servers offer levels of security that you may not find on many sites.
All online transactions at Yahoo! Stores are handled with industry-standard SSL encryption. What does that mean to us average Joes? When you enter your credit card number into the order form, it is transmitted across the Internet in an encrypted (scrambled) form, then decoded when it gets to Yahoo! For added security, Yahoo! also encrypts the credit card number when it is stored on disk, and when they forward it to us.
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." The same technology that makes on-line purchases possible also makes them just as safe and secure as any standard transaction.
