Security of Personal Information
Security Measures on our Site
When you place orders on our Site, all of your order information, including your credit card number and delivery address, is transmitted through the Internet using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL technology causes your browser to encrypt your order information before transmitting it to our secure server. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent someone other than operators of our Sites from capturing and viewing your personal information.
Beefeaters also takes the following measures to protect your personal information online:
To provide you with an increased level of security, online access to your personal information is protected with a password you select. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. Beefeaters will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication, including unsolicited letter, phone calls or emails.
Since any order information you provide to us on our site will be transmitted using a secure connection, if your Web browser cannot support this level of security, you will not be able to order products through our sites. The most recent versions of Netscape NavigatorTM and Microsoft Internet Explorer® can support a secure connection and can be downloaded for free from the Netscape and Microsoft website respectively.
No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we make every effort to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure, Beefeaters cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us on our site.
