Credit Card Security
The Internet is a vast network of computers. Because the data passes from computer to computer, some Internet shoppers worry that unauthorized persons may intercept the data and gain access to credit card numbers, but shopping on a secure site is actually safer than handing a credit card to a waiter in a restaurant. Taking the steps below will lower the chances of interception of your credit card number:
Limit your online shopping to Internet merchants, such as ESA, with sites equipped with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL prevents unauthorized people from intercepting your data.
Credit card information collected by ESA is encrypted through Secure Sockets Layer before it is transmitted over the Internet.
ESA fully cooperates with law agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities, and may in its sole discretion disclose personal information or other information to satisfy any law, regulation, subpoena, or government request. ESA reserves the right to release personal information or other information about users who we believe are engaged in illegal activities or are otherwise in violation of our Terms, even without a warrant or court order, if we believe in our sole discretion that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate the website, or to protect the rights or property of ESA, its affiliates, or any of their officers, directors, or employees, agents, third-party content providers, suppliers, sponsors, or licensors. ESA also reserves the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities we reasonably believe in our sole discretion to be unlawful
