You can feel confident about using our web site to make purchases, because we employ the most up to date security tools available. While no web site can guarantee absolute security, we are totally committed to your security. If your credit card is used in an unauthorized manner please contact AJ at info@bivouacannarbor.com immediately.

Credit Card Safety
Protecting the safety of your credit card information is important to us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology through Aurthorize.net to protect the security of your credit card and personal information as it is transmitted to us.

SSL is a highly sophisticated method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our web site's servers and is considered the gold standard in Internet encryption technology.

Information Security
To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal financial information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or Location line of your browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from "http" to "https."

There are many different kinds of browsers and firewalls, some of which do not permit communication through secure servers. If for any reason you cannot access the secure server, please feel free to place your order with us by phone at 1-877-U GOT BIV (1 877 846 8248).
