Safe Shopping Online

Make sure you're on a secure site before you give your name, address or credit card details. Look for a padlock icon in the bottom corner of your web browser or next to the web site's address. This means your information is scrambled, or encrypted, before being sent over the Internet.

The web sites below have more tips to avoid hackers and identity thieves, and can help make your online experience a safe one.
