Website Security


Learn the basics
The security of your personal information is something we take very seriously. We are committed to ensuring your experience with GreenPacks.com is as safe and worry-free as possible. For this reason, we have outlined steps you can take to verify that the pages of a website are safe and secure.

What is a secure website connection?
A secure connection is an encrypted exchange of information between the website you are visiting and the web browser on your computer (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc) . Encryption protects your personal information during transmission by converting the data into a form, called ciphertext, that cannot be understood by unauthorized computers.

How can I tell if a website uses a secure connection?
Websites using encryption usually display a document called an SSL Certificate (shown below). Website servers and web browsers rely on a SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to create a uniquely encrypted channel for private communication over the internet. Websites obtain this high-tech encryption service by purchasing an SSL Certificate.

Can I verify my connection is safe and secure?
Yes, most browsers will display a lock icon  in the Security Status Bar (top of your screen) when you are on a secured page of a website.
If you click on the lock icon, you will see a security report showing that your connection is encrypted. You will only see this lock icon on secured website pages.
