How K&J Magnetics protects your personal information
We Care about Your Security
We promise to protect your personal and credit card information with the highest level of data privacy and security.
We understand that you're concerned about the security and privacy of online transactions. Nowadays, there's so much coverage of online fraud and identity theft that we realize we have to earn your trust on a daily basis.
We hope this page will provide reassurance that your personal information is securely protected.
How do you secure my payments?
We employ state-of-the-art data encryption to ensure safe and secure transactions on our site.
Our payment area is secured using industry standard Transport Layer Security technology (TLS). You'll know when you enter this area by looking for indications in your browser. Look for indicators such as lock symbols or different colors in the address bar. You'll also notice that http:// is replaced by https:// (the 's' standing for 'Secure').
Your internet browser provides visual indications that you are inside a secure site and that all data transferred is securely encrypted.
Rest assured that your personal and private information remains secure and private when trading with us.
What is SSL/TLS?
Secure Sockets Layer, SSL (or Transport Layer Security, TLS, as it's called now), is the standard security technology for creating an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between our web server and your browser remains private and secure. This system is used by literally millions of websites worldwide to secure internet transactions between the server and the customer.
In order to be able to generate an SSL link (signified by the gold padlock in the information tool bar), a web server requires an SSL Certificate.
What happens to my credit card information after I place an order?
We don't store your credit card information on our website, helping make your information more secure. All electronic payment information is handled via our payment service providers, either Authorize.net or PayPal.
2017 PCI DSS Update
As of June 2017, the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) prohibits the use of older versions of SSL/TLS when carrying out credit card transactions. Consequently, K&J Magnetics's payment processors now require all online purchases to made through a connection secured by at least TLS 1.2. Older internet browsers, like Internet Explorer 10 or lower, do not support these updated security protocols. To comply with these new standards, K&J Magnetics will no longer allow purchases to be made through the site using these older browsers.
