We adopt stringent security measures to ensure that potentially and critically sensitive information such as your name, email, or credit card number is protected. We follow strict in-house security guidelines for ensuring privacy of customer data.
ZipStudy.com utilises industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of all transmission of data to and from our site.
If you are using a security-enabled browser (such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox), the information you send us regarding your purchase is encrypted, making it extremely difficult to read even if it is wrongly intercepted.
This security protects all the information you submit to ZipStudy.com including:
- Potentially sensitive information, such as your name and address
- Critically sensitive information, like your credit card number
Your browser security preference settings are your first line of defence for stopping the theft or unwanted viewing of confidential and personal information. The most popular browser offer you the ability to receive an alert or notification if any of the following happen or are about to happen:
- Changing between secure and insecure transmission modes
- Receiving invalid site identification for a site to which you are about to transmit
- Sending a transmission over an "open" or unsecured connection
Check the settings of your browser security features to see all the checks that are available and those that are currently in place.
The presence of security measures surrounding the entry of data on a web page is identified in two ways 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
There is a de facto standard among web browsers to display a "lock" icon somewhere in the window of the browser (NOT in the web page display area!) For example, Microsoft Internet Explorer displays the lock icon in the lower-right of the browser window:
As another example, Mozilla's FireFox Web Browser displays the lock icon in the lower-left corner:
THE LOCK ICON IS NOT JUST A PICTURE! Click (or double-click) on it to see details of the site's security. This is important to know because some fraudulent web sites are built with a bar at the bottom of the web page to imitate the lock icon of your browser! Therefore it is necessary to test the functionality built into this lock icon. Check your browser's help file or contact the makers of your browser software if you are unsure how to use this functionality.
ZipStudy.com will automatically send you an email confirming your order. This is your assurance that we received that transaction. We are here to make you feel at ease with this process and to make you feel as comfortable as we do about our security measures. If you require further clarifications, please contact us.
