Any credit card purchase that you do through Farmstay is managed by a totally secure Internet transaction processing service, provided by ECnet. As you complete your order, you'll be asked for your name, address, and credit card number. This information is secured though the use of encryption technologies.

Encryption scrambles your information so that the transaction details cannot be intercepted and used by parties for whom this information is not intended. 

Furthermore, you have the opportunity to register your private information with ECnet when you do your first purchase transaction through Farmstay. This means that your personal details, including your credit card number, can be stored in an encrypted database once and is not required to be entered for any future Internet purchases from any ECnet merchant.

When you click the "Fill in My Information" button, you will be asked to enter a user name and password.

ECnet's transaction system currently works only with Web browsers that can use SSL -- such as Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator, version 3 or higher.

ECnet safeguards your transaction by taking the following highly effective precautions:

SSL Encryption Technology
VeriSign Digital Certificates are used to activate SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) to ensure that all information sent to us through the order form is encrypted. This method of encryption is an industry standard in secure, online transactions. It encrypts your information and makes it impossible for anyone to read while in transit.

VeriSign Digital Certificate
VeriSign Digital Certificates bind an identity to a pair of electronic keys that can be used to encrypt and sign digital information. A VeriSign Digital Certificate makes it possible to verify someone's claim that they have the right to use a given key, helping to prevent people from using phoney keys to impersonate other users. Used in conjunction with encryption, VeriSign Digital Certificates provide a more complete security solution, assuring the identity of all parties involved in a transaction.

Account Security
If you create a profile with ECnet, you will only need to supply us with your credit card number once. Your information will be stored in an encrypted database that cannot be accessed.
