Credit Card Payment Processors
To ensure the protection of your payment
information we use CRE Secure and PayPal to process online credit card
payments. Both CRE Secure and PayPal are PCI DSS compliant service
providers. Hodge Products, Inc. never stores payment card
account information in electronic form, nor do we even have access to the
account information for online purchases.

Sockets Layer, which is the standard security technology for creating an
encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all
sensitive data passed between the web server and browser remains private and
secure. Your will know you have created an SSL link with our web server during
the checkout process by seeing the "https://" at the beginning of the
URL, as well as seeing the padlock icon (available in most but not all
browsers) in your Web browser.
For paying with a credit card you will have a
choice of using CRE Secure or PayPal. If you choose CRE Secure You will
be transferred to a payment page at cresecure.net. The payment page has
the same look and feel as pages on our website but is actually located on a CRE
Secure server. An SSL Certificate issued by UTN-USERFIRS-Hardware
protects CRESecure.net. The certificate will identify the site as
hodgeproductsinc.cresecure.net. Alternatively, if you use PayPal you will
be transferred to the familiar PayPal site for payment. PayPal.com uses
an SSL Certificate issued by VeriSign.
