uumbrella acknowledges the importance of the security regarding Personal Data Protection, as well as electronic transactions and has taken all necessary precautions with the use of the latest methods in order to get the best possible security. All the information you provide is safe and confidential. In order to secure your personal date, uumbrella uses SSL technology (Secure Sockets Layer). SSL is considered to be the most reliable medium for safe transactions through the internet on a worldwide basis. With the use of this technology, all information you provide in our site is coded before it gets online and then the authenticity of the message and the server is checked. SSL come out at 2 types, 40-bit and 128-bit. The larger the number of bits, the harder it is for the coded message to be penetrated. We use SSL 128-bit, which is a billion times safer than the 40-bit. uumbrella also has digital certificate of security provided by Thawte, a world wide recognized provider of secure transactions and data transmissions on the internet. Each time you enter a site in which a transaction is going to be made or personal information is going to be transmitted, a small lock is shown on the right hand side of the bottom of your screen certifying that the transaction is secured.
During your online session with electronic store, all the information, along with your personal data, is coded with the use of protocol coding SSL 128-bit. Crypting is basically a way of coding the information until it reaches its destination and it is then decrypted with the use of a key. Each time you enter the electronic store all the information shared between your computer and Uumbrella is encrypted with the use of a 128 bits key. Which means that each time you send information to the system, the browser first codes them, and then it sends them to the system. The system used by Uumbrella first decrypts the information provided with the use of the same key and then it processes it. The system used by uumbrella sends to you the information in the same cryptic manner.
