How secure is information about me (SSL protection)?
TakaTomo.de is secured by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software which encrypts information during transmission of all private data. You will see the SSL encryption looking at your browser status bar or web address field (depending of the browser you use). There you will see a closed security lock. Additional the address of each sensitive page (e.g. checkout process) should begin with "https://" (secure hypertext transfer protocol) instead of "http://" (hypertext transfer protocol).
