Question : What kind of security do you use?
Answer : We use the Stronghold secure server, currently the second best
selling secure server software, and in our opinion, technically the best
product. It supports industry-standard 128-bit SSL encryption.
All online transactions at Yahoo! Stores are handled with industry-standard
When you enter your credit card number into the order form, it is transmitted
across the Internet in an encrypted (scrambled) form, then decoded when
it gets to us.
For added security, we also encrypt the credit card number when it is stored
on disk, and when we forward it to the merchant.
If you are not the kind of person who worries about being hit by lightning
as you're crossing the street, you probably don't have to worry that your
credit card number will be intercepted on the way to a secure Web site.

opinion...is that on-line credit card use is actually no riskier for consumers
than traditional "low-tech" transactions."
We order products online
all the time, both as a company and as individuals. When we use a credit
card to buy something online, we feel at least as safe as we would using
one in a store or restaurant.
information does iHealthTree.com collect from you?
In order to better provide you with numerous products and services, We
collect two types of information about its visitors: Personally Identifiable
Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Our primary goal
in collecting information from you is to provide you with a smooth, efficient,
and customized experience while using our site.
This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific
individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you
shop on our site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed
on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include
the Web site's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from,
which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet
Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and
other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier
for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol
("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the web
use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of
the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically
assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web
servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses
in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop.
We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to
gather broad demographic information, to enable ads to be served on our
site, to report Non-Personally Identifiable Information to our advertisers,
and to monitor the level of activity on our site. We collect information
from visitors to our site regarding the URLs they came from, their IP
addresses, domain types (e.g., .com or .org), the browser type used to

their visit, and any search terms entered on our site.

from you. If you order one of our products or services, we will collect
and maintain your name, e-mail address, billing address, shipping address,

order, to communicate with you about your order and to send you promotional
materials via email. Before confirming your order, you will have the opportunity
to review the product order form and make changes and additions to the
