Protection of personal information

A secure server is used.
WormsRus uses industry standard data encryption for transmission of any personal information including credit card details you provide online. Known as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol, you can check this is active by looking for the padlock symbol on many browsers. SSL allows a secure connection between your web browser and our web server, using a private (or secret) key to encrypt the information.This encryption provides greater consumer protection than many forms of offline credit card payment.
