1. Your transactions are supported by industry-standard data encryption

What does that mean?

To help protect your credit card number and personal information, every order is encrypted. Encryption is a process by which software is used to scramble your credit card number and personal information in transit to DaveBeckerman.com

If you are using a security-enabled browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer version 2.1 or greater, or Netscape Navigator version 2.0 or greater), the information you send DaveBeckerman.com regarding your purchase is encrypted, making it extremely difficult to read even if it is wrongly intercepted.

DaveBeckerman.com utilizes industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of: potentially sensitive information such as your name, address and critically sensitive information like your credit card number

2. Site Identification

The DaveBeckerman.com website is registered with site identification authorities to enable your browser to confirm the DaveBeckerman.com Store's identity before any transmission is sent. You can confirm this by clicking on the Verisign Logo.

With this technology, the identity of DaveBeckerman Photography is confirmed prior to the transmission of any customer information requested to complete an online order. Your data reaches your intended target or your browser notifies you (prior to your sending any personal information) that the potential receiving site looks suspicious and should be avoided.

3. How to tell if you are in secure mode

If you use a security-enabled browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer version 2.1 or greater, or Netscape Navigator version 2.0 or greater) paying attention to two browser features will decrease the chances for the unintended or fraudulent use of your personal information:

The presence of security measures surrounding the entry of data on a web page is identified in several ways for you on your browser: the URL identifying the page will always begin with "https://" versus the normal "http://" a security symbol to indicate operation in a mode that supports secure transmissions

A "closed lock" icon is present in the bottom right-hand corner of your Microsoft Internet Explorer browser screen

An "unbroken key" icon appears in the lower left-hand corner of the Netscape Navigator browser screen With these security measures in place, you can also feel confident that every credit card transaction you make at DaveBeckerman.com is secure .

4. Additional Precautions

Although all of these precautions deal with preventing unauthorized interception of your credit card information on route to DaveBeckerman.com or on route to the credit card processing agent, they don't deal with unauthorized hacking to the site itself (something that's been in the news a lot lately).

For this reason, your credit card number will not be stored at DaveBeckerman.com or anywhere else. This ensures that there is no possibility of hackers breaking into the database at DaveBeckerman.com and stealing credit card information.

It also means, that if for any reason you need to request a return of merchandise, or credit, you will need to either resend your credit card information or get refunded by check. A small inconvenience but I think it's worth the additional security it ensures.

5. Mailing Lists etc.

Personally, I hate when anyone sends my personal information out to anyone without my permission, and I will not ever do this to customers at DaveBeckerman.com. You will not end up on Fine-Art mailing lists, or any other type of list by entering your information here.

If you have any questions about this, or would like to purchase a print but don't want to do it on-line, please feel free to e-mail me.

Ordering by Check

If you prefer not to put credit card information over the internet, you can order by check.
