theEssentials.com values you as a customer and protecting you and your order information are of paramount importance to us. Sockets Layer (SSL) technology is used to protect all aspects of your transaction on the site.
SSL encrypts your order information to avoid the decoding of that information by anyone other than theEssentials.com. To verify the security of your transactions and check the security of your connection; check at the lower left corner of your browser window after accessing the server. A closed lock (depending on your browser) indicates that the SSL is active. A second way to verify the secure status of your transaction is indicated in the URL of the pages upon which information is provided. When the first characters of the URL are "https" as opposed to "http" you are accessing a secure server.
If your browser or firewall does not permit communication through secure servers, you will not be able to place an order.
