We keep all your information private and secure. All orders are placed through our secure server at the highest encryption rates available. And we will not release an iota of this information to any third party. Ever. We want your experiences at ZhiTea.com to be safe and secure and we are fully committed to this goal. Therefore, we use Verisign's 128 bit, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology enhanced with Server Gated Cryptography (SGC), the most robust encryption technology commercially available in the world, to encrypt your credit card number and other personal information as it travels over the internet from your computer to our secure server. SSL is a standard technology used by millions of other commercial e-commerce websites. You can always tell when a web page uses SSL since the “http” in your browser’s address box changes to “https” (the s stands for secure). Most browsers will also display a closed lock at the bottom of the page.
Using your credit card to place an online order with ZhiTea.com is far safer than using your credit card in a store or over the phone. This is true for several reasons both technical and practical, but most notably because your credit card number is never seen by anyone at ZhiTea.com instead of many people, as is potentially the case in a busy store or phone-sales line.» Top of Page
