When you place an order online at Cia's Palette, the information you send to us is protected by Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts your order using strong 128-bit encryption to prevent the decoding of that information by anyone other than ciaspalette.com.
To get an idea of what that means, consider this: according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, assuming that one could build a computer that could decrypt one encrypted key every second, it would take that machine approximately 149 trillion(!) years to decipher a single 128-bit transaction. In a nutshell, it means that shopping online at Cia's Palette is safe and secure.
