    With all of the recent credit card security issues we have been seeing on the news, we have decided to move our credit card system into a high security Tokenization system. Although it's a more expensive system, we want our customers to have the highest available credit card protection. With this new system, the credit cards are not viewable by our own company other than a small token of the card number. The rest of the card is in small tokenized pieces on a completely different server with extra safeguards.

    For any new customers you won't even know we made this change. For any existing customers, we had to move our credit card system from one server to the other. Any credit card that was used before was processed as a zero dollar authorization, so it could be tokenized and sent to the new server and deleted off of ours. If you see a zero dollar charge on your credit card it's just from transferring the card over, you will not see any actual charge on your card and your card is completely secure. While we had excellent security prior to this change, the new system allows for even greater security standards - putting on par with the largest of online e-commerce sites all over the world.

    If you have any questions about this security change please do not hesitate to let us know.
