Safety and Security


Security Standards

The Shopatron service has built-in measures, including sophisticated encryption and authentication tools, to protect the security of the contact information that you share with us.


Our secure server software (SSL) is the industry standard and is 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 the information cannot be read as it travels over the Internet. We use industry-standard practices, such as encrypted storage and password protection systems, to safeguard the confidentiality of your information.


Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your contact information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our websites, and you do so at your own risk.


We do not accept credit card numbers delivered by email. You should never send credit card information by email, as it is not secure.


GeoTrust Security

Shopatron uses industry-standard GeoTrust security to ensure that manufacturers, consumers, and retailers can connect, communicate, and transact with confidence.


Protecting Children

We take special care to protect the safety and privacy of children. In compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we do not knowingly provide our service to persons under the age of 13. We also do not send email correspondence to anyone who tells us that they are under the age of 13.


We urge parents and guardians to participate in their children's online activities and use parental control or other web filtering technology to supervise children's access to the web.
