We recognize the value of your personal information and have put in place suitable safeguards and security measures to protect it from unauthorized access or disclosure, to preserve data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of information. Design Neon will always make every effort to provide a secure and safe environment for doing online transactions. We employ the industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to encrypt data sent over the internet. This encryption scrambles sensitive information such as credit card numbers, billing information, and delivery addresses, rendering it unreadable to other computers, so preserving privacy and security.
To verify that you are connected to a secure server, look for the unbroken key or closed lock icon in the bottom left or top right corner of your browser window. If it shows, SSL is enabled. You can verify by inspecting the URL. If SSL is enabled, the URL’s initial characters will read ‘https’ rather than ‘http.’ It is critical that you safeguard your password and computer from unauthorized access.
Ensure that you sign out after accessing our websites, especially if you are using a shared computer.
