Our site supports secure on-line purchasing through secure
socket layer (SSl) technology. This technology works
best when the site is viewed with a Netscape or Microsoft
browser. The information that you provide during the
shopping process is encrypted for your protection. When
ordering at our site using the secure order form you will
notice either a solid key or closed lock on your
browser. Always look for these signs before entering
your billing information.
When you are ready to order, you are taken to our Secure
Shopping Cart Server and you will notice the address begins
with HTTP. Our email checks automatically every 10 minutes. We
receive an email telling us there is an order waiting for us.
Our secure server software (SSL) is the industry standard and
among the best software available today for secure commerce
transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information,
including credit card number, name, and address, so that it
cannot be read as the information travels over the Internet.
Purchasing at Flowers-Central.com is far safer than giving
your credit card to a waiter in restaurant, a counter person
at a car rental facility, or a gas station attendant. In those
cases, your credit card number is on a piece of paper and is
potentially visible to many people who work at these
establishments. That's not secure...yet, millions of people
buy meals, rent cars and buy auto fuel this way all time.
We guarantee your shopping experience with Flowers-Central.com
to be completely safe for you. Under the Fair Credit Billing
Act, you cannot be held liable for more than $50 of any
fraudulent charges. Our shopping system logs all dns addresses
for your security and ours.
Still don't want to use your credit card on the Internet? No
problem. Just call our customer service department at
1-866-834-9029 and a customer care representative will take
