Privacy & Security


Security

Orders placed with Garrett Specialties over the Internet are secure and safe. We you enter information on to our website we will protect your information both online and offline. We use an SSL certificate to protect the information you submit to our site. It encrypts names, addresses, passwords, account information, credit card numbers and more so hackers and other online criminals can't read them. The use of SSL Certificates delivers peace of mind and superior-quality service.

An SSL certificate serves as an electronic "passport." It establishes the website's authenticity and credibility and enables the browser and Web server to build a secure, encrypted connection. 

Garrett Specialties owns a Premium SSL Certificate which gives the you an additional visual cue, that displays our name against a distinctive green background in your browser bar. When you are on an SSL-protected page, the following visual indicators appear to show you that our site is secure and to give you the confidence to proceed:

  • A "padlock" icon in the browser's status bar
  • The https:// prefix in the URL
  • The URL address bar turns to green.

Our certificate includes a #1 net-new SSL certificate that is fully validated and covers up to 256-bit encryption. It is validated every 5 years and has 99% browser recognition, stringent authentication, and has a Warranty (up to $250,000).

SSL is short for Secure Sockets Layer. The SSL protocol was developed by Netscape and is supported by all popular web browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Google Chrome. SSL is then used to encrypt the data transmitted (secure SSL transactions) between a browser and web server (and vice versa). Browsers indicate an SSL secured session by changing the http to https and displaying a small padlock. Website visitors can click on the padlock to view the SSL certificate.

256 bit SSL is also referred to as Premium SSL Security. The 256 bit tells you the size of the encryption key used to encrypt the data being passed between a web browser and web server. Because the size of the 256 bit key is large it is computationally unfeasible to crack and hence is known as Premium SSL Security. Encryption is a means of scrambling information so that it cannot be reassembled without the key.
