Yes! When you make purchases online on the Starscope site, we always safeguard your payment data. That’s why there is an image of a padlock 🔒 next to the domain address.
In order to do that, we always use an SSL Certificate. There are two easy methods of determining whether a website has SSL certification. First, an icon of a locked padlock should be present in the URL bar at the top of your web browser. Second, another method of identifying a website with an SSL Certification is the domain name:
Secure websites begin with: https://
Unsecured websites begin with: http://
An SSL (secure sockets layer) is an encryption method that all online retailers who deal with credit or debit card details must have. An SSL encryption stops hackers from accessing your personal or financial information, ensuring your details are secure and safe.
The padlock icon 🔒 means that the site is using encrypted communications to secure any information you submit to it. The “s” in “https” also means that communications between the website and your computer or mobile are secure and encrypted. You should only buy from sites with “https” on their check-out page.
