AVIONIC SUPPLY protects your credit card information with the highest level of security. We use a 256 bit (SSL) Secure Socket Layer Technology. This is the most advanced form of security for credit card transactions over the Internet. The way this technology works is when you enter any sensitive information when it leaves your computer it gets mixed up. The information stays mixed up until it reaches our secure server. Once in our server it is put back in order by the same source that mixed it up and then used for its intended purpose. The data cannot be read while being transferred and the only source that can unscramble it is the source that scrambled it to start with, and that is located on our server. After your order is shipped and we have received payment from our merchant AVIONIC SUPPLY, Inc destroys all credit card information. The total time your information is retained in our secure server is approximately 48 hours.
