Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen recognizes and respects the importance of customers’ privacy and security. To guarantee our customers a safe and confidential shopping experience, Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen safeguards their personal information. More specifically, Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen actively employs Secure Sockets Layer, SSL, technology on the credit card and personal information pages of our website. SSL technology functions by managing server and client authentication, and encrypting both server and client communication.
This means that our server encrypts your credit card information and keeps it safe by routing payment only to Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen. Your credit card information is never stored or visible to Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen when you purchase online. Due to this safety feature, each time you place an order online, you will need to provide your credit card information.
To further ensure a secure connection, when you access the “checkout” page (where sensitive information is entered), you will notice the first characters of the URL, uniform resource locator (web address), will change from “http” to “https.” The change in the address denotes a secure IP
address. Some browsers and firewalls do not permit communication through secure servers. If you access Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen through an insecure connection you will not be able to place an order online. If you cannot access our shopping cart, please print out our order form and place your order by phone at 1-800-653-6888

Southeastern Equipment and Oxygen uses a browser feature known as a cookie. A cookie is a simple file that stores your personalized information on your hard drive so you don’t have to re-enter it a second time when revisiting our website.

Regarding Credit Card Transactions
You can safely transmit credit card information through our website. You can enter your credit card number on a secure (https) form and transmit the form over the Internet to a secure server without risk of an intermediary obtaining your credit card information. The security features offered by your web browser technology protects commercial transactions, as well as all other communications, from misappropriation and fraud that could otherwise occur as information passes through the internet.
With SSL implemented on both the client and server, your internet communications are transmitted in an encrypted form. Information you send can be trusted to arrive privately and unaltered to the server you specify (and no other).
SSL uses authentication and encryption technology. For example, your browsers export implementation of SSL (U.S. government approved) uses a high-grade, 128-bit key size. The encryption established between you and a server remains valid over multiple connections, yet the effort expended to defeat the encryption of one message cannot be leveraged to defeat the next message.
Your browser and secure servers deliver server authentication using signed digital certificates issued by trusted third parties known as certificate authorities. A digital certificate verifies the connection between a server’s public key and the server’s identification. Cryptographic checks, using digital signatures, ensure that information within a certificate can be trusted.
