The secure server that powers Talas' database and purchase transactions encrypts all payment information that you transmit to us while using our site. This includes your user name, password, billing information, credit card number and expiration date. The encryption process takes all of the personal information and converts it into code that is securely transmitted over the Internet.
Our servers are managed by professional programmers who are experts in e-commerce security.
SSL encrypts your order information to avoid the decoding of that information by anyone other than Talas. To check the security of your connection, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https."
Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you'll be unable to connect to the server so you won't have to worry about mistakenly placing an order through an unsecured connection. If you can't access the secure server for whatever reason, please place your order by phone or by fax.
If you experience fraudulent use of your credit card as a result of using your credit card to make a purchase through TalasOnline.com on the Internet, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures. In addition, please let us know of the problem by phone at 212-219-0770 or e-mail.
