Your order records are only accessible to the owner's of GardeningwithEase.com. In order to provide greater security we do not keep your credit/debit card information in a reusable electronic format. This requires that you resubmit this information with every purchase. We feel this slight inconvenience is worth the added security.
Using a credit card over the internet is far more secure than giving your card to a waiter or gas station attendant. On the internet there is no "paper trail", (i.e. there are no receipts to be found in the trash). Because of encryption, using a credit card on the internet is safer than on the telephone.
