We have tried to be prudent in setting our business practices and in selecting the various service providers who help us manage our Web sites, process credit cards and orders, and deliver the products. However, there is always risk in conducting business, especially over the Internet, and no systems can totally guarantee security. These are risks everyone accepts in using the Web site.
