NOTE from ValleyVet.com: As you may have seen in recent news, a vulnerability has been exposed in OpenSSL, a popular web encryption software used widely across the internet. This vulnerability - dubbed Heartbleed - makes it possible for hackers to access information transmitted from your computer even though it is being encrypted via the HTTPS protocol.
ValleyVet.com does not use the affected encryption software. Your personal data was never at risk. Your data is protected by the following safeguards.
Valley Vet Supply understands your concerns over Internet security. Because we share your concerns, we've worked to develop a highly secure online ordering process - one that lets you shop and order with confidence. And we offer an Order Security Guarantee that gives you 100% protection for your credit card transactions at ValleyVet.com.
Our website encrypts your credit card number the moment you click the Finalize button, and it remains encrypted until the credit card processing bank un-encrypts it. At no time while we have your credit card information can it be accessed in an unencrypted format. Furthermore, unlike many other websites, we do not store credit card numbers on our website for future use. We require a customer to enter it completely on each order. These features, coupled with industry-standard website security monitoring, gives us 100% confidence in the security of our website.
How we protect your security
Using a combination of a leading e-commerce business software package and the security features built into most popular browsers, our site provides you with advanced online shopping security.
Our security measures begin when you place your first item in our shopping cart; this is automatic and requires no special action on your part. Once you've placed the items you need in the shopping cart and pressed the "Checkout" button, your browser looks for a digital certificate. ValleyVet.com uses Network Solutions software to enable the use of a SSL Certificate. You can click on the secure site logo below to verify that ValleyVet.com is a Network Solutions secure site. For your security, the verification process happens in the background every time you place an order with us.
After confirmation of the certificate is received, your computer and our server will begin communicating in secure mode, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format. The powerful encryption features standard in most browsers will ensure the security of the data that is passed between us.
The final step in the order process is submitting your credit card number. Our site uses the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol and 128-bit strong encryption to maintain the highest level of security. Once you click the "Finish" button, your order is routed through to our highly secure internal system that is inaccessible via the Internet.

FAQ about security

You can also tell your browser is in secure mode by looking at the address window. The address in standard, non-secure mode will begin "http://" whereas the address in secure mode will begin "https://".
