Our site employs the latest version of Secure Socket Layer Technology (SSL) to encrypt your information and help make sure that only you and Empire Imports ever see it. Some web browsers and some firewalls will not permit a secure connection. If your web browser will not permit a secure connection, our site will not accept your credit card information and instead will require you to provide that information by telephone.
Your browser should display a "lock" or a "key" icon in the lower left-hand corner of your screen when a secure connection is made. Alternatively, you can check by looking at the URL bar on top of your browser. This line will typically show the first characters as "https" when a secure connection has been established. The more commonly used version, "http", indicates a connection that is not secure.
