Why it is safe to shop online at PartyBanners.com
Our measures to protect your money and your privacy

We use the Volusion Secure Data Encrypted service and software to enable the use of a digital certificate (a unique Secure Server ID) which assures that all customer communications are encrypted for privacy and security. You can click on any Volusion SSL Secure Site Logo on our site (at the bottom left of every page) to ensure that PartyBanners.com is authentic and safe. The verification process happens in the background and establishes a secure channel every time you place an order on our site. Based on the same technology used to protect nuclear missile codes (Secure Sockets Layer), Volusion Secure Server IDs provide the strongest security and encryption available today.

The Secure Order Process & Our Shopping Cart
What happens and how you'll know

Our website encrypts your credit card number and personal information prior to transmission over the Internet using up to 256-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology protocol to maintain the highest level of security. This technology is built into popular browser software and is required to complete an order.We recommend keeping your browser up to date with the latest version.These new releases are usually available for free and can be downloaded from the respective vendor. Our site provides advanced security for your online purchases. The following section describes how the secure order process works.

1. Starting Your Order
Every order at PartyBanners.com is secure, and clicking a Checkout button on any page is all it takes to get started. The security features are automatic; you don't need to do anything special to establish this protection.

2. Making a Positive ID
After you've clicked the Add to Cart button and decided to complete your purchase, your browser looks for a digital certificate to confirm that it is communicating with PartyBanners.com (we are a Volusion Secure Site). Once a positive ID is made, your order continues.

3. Entering Secure Mode
At this point you may see a pop-up window which some browsers display when you are about to receive a secure document. It's fine to click "OK" (or "Continue") to proceed - it simply means that you will begin receiving pages in a highly secure format. FYI - Some pages may load slightly slower with a secure connection.

Next, your computer and our server begin communicating in secure mode, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format.

Microsoft and Mozilla Firefox browsers each display a unique small lock symbol to identify when you have established a secure connection or entered a secure area. If you see the lock connected, you are linked to a secure environment. Please feel free and confident to enter your personal and credit card information - the encryption is very powerful and is actually safer than handing your card to a clerk or using your card information over the phone. Confirming message windows may or may not pop up (depending on your settings) each time you enter or leave a secure area or connection. We recommend that you try to upgrade to the latest version of your browser whenever possible. These are free to download from each respective vendor.

After your browser has entered secure mode, we'll ask you to enter your personal, shipping and credit card information to complete your order. The encryption features of browser software are exceptionally powerful and ensure the security of this data as it is transmitted.

4. My Order Is Complete. What Happens Next?
Security measures continue even after you've placed your order, as we process your order on a highly secure internal system that is inaccessible via the Internet. You may continue to browse or leave our site - your order is protected and safe with us.
