On Privacy & Security
All items available for direct internet purchase will be processed through our shopping cart on our secure server so that all your information will be 128 bit encrypted through our certificate to avoid being intercepted by a third party. Once a purchase has been consummated an invoice will be generated describing the goods purchased, all costs assigned to the order. This invoice will be sent to your designated email address.

Problems Adding to Cart? Cookies must be enabled within browser settings. Lowering the security settings may also help. AOL users may need to turn on cookies as some browser versions are set to off by default. High personal firewall privacy settings may also effect cart operation but in most cases not. Norton / Symantec Personal Firewall users may have HTTP Referers turned off. Norton Internet Security when set to not report HTTP Referers is a so called "privacy" issue for a user. For the website owner it's a "security" issue if they don't report the referer, almost a catch-22. Just turn referers on by:

Advanced Options / Privace Tab / Referer

The shopping cart works through cookie technology. Make sure your browser is set to accept cookies for cart to function properly.
