Using a secure server,
in conjunction with features built into popular browser software, our site
provides advanced security for your online purchases. The following section
describes how the secure order process works, from start to finish.
1 - Starting Your
Every purchase at TOOLRAGE.COM is secure, and clicking a Checkout button on
the Shopping Cart page is all it takes to get started. The security features
are automatic; you don't need to do anything special to invoke them.
2 - Making a Positive ID
Once you've clicked the Secure Checkout button, your browser looks for a digital
certificate to confirm that it is communicating with TOOLRAGE.COM. Once a positive
ID is made, your order continues. We use digital certificates to verify your
order. For your security, the verification process happens in the background
every time you place an order on our site.
3 - Entering Secure Mode
Next, your computer and our server begin communicating in secure mode, sending
data back and forth in an encrypted format. At this point you may see a window
similar to the one below, 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 encrypted format. After your browser has entered secure mode, we'll ask
you to enter your credit card information. The encryption features of browser
software are exceptionally powerful and ensure the security of this data as
it is transmitted to our server. Our site makes use of the Secure Sockets Layer
(SSL) protocol and 128-bit strong encryption to provide the highest level of

What Happens Next? Security measures continue even after you've placed your
order, as we process your order in a highly secure computing environment.
A Note About
Older Web Browsers
f you use one of the
following Web browsers, you may encounter a security warning when you visit
a secure page at any Web site after December 31, 1999:
- Netscape Communicator 4.05
- Microsoft Internet Explorer
4.01 for Macintosh
The warning is generated
in error and is caused by a software problem in these browsers. The problem
does not affect the security of your connection to our site.
Watching It Work
The most popular Web
browsers, Internet Explorer and Netscape Communicator (aka Navigator), use
clear visual symbols to let you know whether or not they are in secure mode.
The symbols are displayed either at the bottom left or bottom right of your
browser window. You can refer to the following chart to see which symbols
are used with your browser:
|Netscape 1.x, 2.x, 3.x
that a browser is in secure mode can be found in the Web site address that
your browser displays. The address will begin "http://" in standard, non-secure
mode and "https://" in secure mode. The "s" stands for "secure."
Continuing to Browse
Once your order is complete, it's perfectly safe for you to continue to browse
our site in standard mode. In fact, once you exit the ordering process, your
browser will automatically revert to this slightly faster mode of communication.
I Make a Purchase with a Browser That Doesn't Support Security?
You can't. Because we don't want you ever to have to worry about ordering
from our site without a secure connection, we've designed our system so that
it will process orders only with browsers that support secure mode. Please
note that the latest versions of Netscape's and Microsoft's browsers have
security features, and both are free for downloading. Visit either company's
Web site for details.
We've worked hard to bring you a secure online ordering environment. Please
do not hesitate to contact us if you
have any questions, comments or concerns. Visit our Privacy
Page for more details on how we treat the privacy of the personal information
you provide to us.
