Security and Privacy
At OPP Racing, we take your security & privacy very seriously. We have taken a host of measures to ensure that your purchase is as safe as possible. Please refer to the sections below for a detailed description of our security measures.
Keep in mind that if you are for any reason uncomfortable placing an order online, you can always place an order by phone at (604) 942-6744.
We have built www.oppracing.com with your security and ease of navigation as our primary goals. With regards to security, there are a few things you need to know. Our website uses the ultra-secure 128-bit SSL encryption technology, which without going into all the jargon, simply means that you are safe than safe when you enter sensitive information on our site.
If you really want the jargon - here it is.
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer, and is a proven encryption method. SSL encrypts data such as credit cards numbers and other personal information during transmission between the server (OPP Racing Website) and the client (you), so that hackers can’t steal it and use it.
Setting up a secure communication requires commitment from both ends – the client (you) and the server (OPP Racing website). For your part, all you need to do is use a web browser that supports the use of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Prominent browsers such as Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla Firefox all support this technology, and automatically uses it when accessing the secure portion of the OPP Racing website.
On the server side (OPP Racing website), we’ve done our homework and made sure information passing between your computer and our server stays away from prying eyes. Here is a quick breakdown of what happens when you log onto our secure site:
- Your web browser has both a public key, and a private key. These 2 keys are mathematically related, and information encrypted using a public key can only be decrypted using the corresponding private key. The public key is publicly displayed on the internet, whereas only your computer has the corresponding private key.
Below is an example of a public key – pretty complex huh?
3048 0241 00C9 18FA CF8D EB2D EFD5 FD37 89B9 E069 EA97 FC20 5E35 F577 EE31 C4FB C6E4 4811 7D86 BC8F BAFA 362F 922B F01B 2F40 C744 2654 C0DD 2881 D673 CA2B 4003 C266 E2CD CB02 0301 0001
- Your web browser “talks” to the OPP Racing website, and transmits its public key. Think of it as a set of instructions for OPP Racing on how to send data to you.
- OPP Racing website then sends the information encrypted using your public key, for your computer to decrypted using your private key. If this information is intercepted mid-way, the hacker doesn’t have your private key, and the information just turns into random mumble jumble.
- You receive this mumble jumble, and using your own private key, decrypt it into usable information.
To make sure that all the crucial steps above are being executed properly, OPP Racing employs the service of COMODO Authentication & Security (http://www.comodogroup.com) to ensure all transactions on our website is secure. COMODO is a prominent US-based internet security company, and their “COMODO Authentic Site” stamp of approval means that our website has passed their rigorous testing.
So the bottom line once again? We said it, and COMODO Authentication & Security’s confirmed it. You are safe when you enter sensitive information on our site.
Credit Card Security
We at OPP Racing understand that credit card security is paramount in any online-based purchase, and therefore is our #1 concern. On top of being securely transmitted to our servers, your credit information is kept on our secure servers and used solely to process that unique order. All subsequent purchases will require a re-submission of credit card information, and we will never charge a credit card unless you place a specific order with it.
