All online transactions at Pondering Pool are
handled with industry-standard SSL encryption.

When you enter your credit card number into the
order form, it is transmitted across the Internet
in an encrypted (scrambled) form, then decoded
when it gets to us.

If you are not the kind of person who worries
about being hit by lightning as you're
crossing the street, you probably don't have to
worry that your credit card number will be
intercepted on the way to a secure Web site.

According to CNN,
"The prevalent opinion...is that on-line credit
card use is actually no riskier for consumers than
traditional "low-tech" transactions."

We order products online all the time, both as a
company and as individuals. When we use a credit
card to buy something online, we feel at least as
safe as we would using one in a store or restaurant.
