Tarps Plus understands and shares your concern about security and privacy. It is reassuring to know that it is statistically safer to use your credit card on the web than to use it in a store or restaurant. The information that you provide when placing an order with us (e.g. your name, address, and credit card information) is secure. It cannot be read or tampered with during transmission.
For your security, we authorize your credit card after we obtain confirmation that your card is a valid number and has not been reported lost or stolen. We also verify that the "Bill To" address matches the address on the credit card used. It is not uncommon for a request for credit card authorization to fail at times. We will contact you if we experience such difficulties and you may wish to provide another credit card.
Email is not encrypted so please do not transmit your credit card number via e-mail.
