Security Statement: is a secure site The ordering area of our Web site is secure. That means it is protected by state-of-the-art encryption technology. This sophisticated system encrypts your financial information to protect it during transmission.

Other areas of our site (such as the product pages) do not require secure transmission. By keeping these areas non-secure, we assure that our site will load faster, so your shopping experience will be more enjoyable.

HERE'S HOW TO KNOW WHEN YOU'RE IN A SECURE SECTION OF OUR BETTYS.CA Look at the site address (URL) in your browser's address window. If it begins with http:// you are in a NON-secure section of our site. If it begins with https:// you are in a secure area. The "s" stands for "secure." When you move from a non-secure to a secure section, the "s" automatically appears -- i.e., http:// changes to https://

Look in the bottom left-hand corner of your browser window. Do you see a tiny lock or key? That shows you're on a secure Web page. Both Internet Explorer and Netscape (4.0 & higher) use tiny closed locks to indicate secure mode.

Pay attention to the security-notice window. This window may pop up when you move from a secure Web page to a non-secure one, or vice versa. The notice may read, "You are entering a page which is secure" or "You have requested a secure document"...or, conversely, it may read, "You are submitting a form which is not secure."
