We understand that with the increase in web based commerce, customer concerns about the security of their personal information is of the utmost importance. For you, Freedom Paper offers the following package of security measures, which we believe secures your personal information at the most extreme (and sometimes even redundant) degree possible.
This Web site is secured with a GoDaddy.com Web Server Certificate. Transactions on the site are protected with up to 256-bit Secure Sockets Layer encryption. Traditionally, these certificates are either a standard or premium, with the significant difference being that the latter not only verifies the seller as being the owner of the domain, but also legitimizes the business through an extensive vetting process that includes a history of transactions completed securely. Freedom Paper uses GoDaddy's highest protection, the extended validation (premium) certificate. This protection insures that you are making an encrypted, valid transaction with a legitimate business.

Site Certification verifies merchant credit card handling processes and—if applicable— tests merchant Internet systems to determine if they comply with Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards.
PCI compliance is required of all websites that take credit card information for transactions. Security Metrics even uses PANscan technology that ensures that no credit card information is inadvertently stored on our servers, a redudant check that doubles your security.

SecureCode™ a new service from MasterCard and your card issuer that provides added protection when you buy online. There is no need to get a new MasterCard or Maestro® card. You choose your own personal MasterCard SecureCode and it is never shared with any merchant. A private code means added protection against unauthorized use of your credit or debit card when you shop online. Every time you pay online with your MasterCard or Maestro card, a box pops up from your card issuer asking you for your personal SecureCode, just like the bank does at the ATM. In seconds, your card issuer confirms it's you and allows your purchase to be completed.
