G-MAXX.COM shall protect the security of your personal information and credit card detail when you shop with us online using the security protections described below. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology the industry standard to encrypt the personal information and credit card detail you provide during the order process.
To ensure the security of your personal information, you should always provide that information over a secure connection. You can check the existence of a secure connection in one of two ways:
1. Look at the URL in your web browser. Whenever you are connected to a secure server, that connection will be represented in the URL as \"https,\" rather than \"http.\"
2. Look at the lower left-hand corner of your web browser. You know you have an SSL connection if you see an unbroken key in Netscape Navigator (versions 2.0 and above), or a closed lock in Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 3.0 and above) or AOL (AOL 3.0 and above).
While G-MAXX.COM makes every effort to ensure the integrity and security of its network and systems, G-MAXX.COM cannot guarantee that its security measures will prevent third-party \"hackers\" from illegally obtaining this information.
Please remember that any information you may disclose in public areas of our website or the Internet becomes public information. You should exercise caution when deciding to disclose personal information in these public areas.
