Why this is safe
The Fantasy Index store supports encrypted credit card transactions. We use SSL secure server software to protect your transaction. Your name, credit card number, and other personal data can't be read by anyone else as it travels from your computer to ours. It's the industry-standard technology used by giants including Amazon.com and others
Shopping at encrypted internet sites such as ours is statistically safer -- by orders of magnitude -- than handing your credit card to a waiter in a restaurant or than writing your credit card number on an order form and placing in a U.S. mailbox.
Our secure commerce server supports encrypted transactions. On the Fantasy Index web site, pages requesting personal information are delivered through HTTPS, a secure server communications layer (the current internet standard). Most browsers display a special icon when a page is secure; often it is a padlock icon in a corner of the window.
When you use HTTPS, a software program encrypts your data before sending it to us. It takes whatever you give it -- your credit card number, for instance -- and scrambles it into a meaningless jumble of letters, numbers and symbols so that even if someone somehow intercepts your information, they can't piece it back together into anything understandable. But on our end, we have the key to descramble the information.
