We use Secure Socket Layering (SSL) technology to encrypt your personal credit or debit card information, including the account number, while it is transmitted over the Internet between your computer and our website servers. SSL is the industry standard technology for secure online transactions. Encryption is a sophisticated method of "scrambling" data.
If unauthorized charges (as determined by your card issuer) are made on your credit or debit card as a result of purchases made on homerlaughlin.com utilizing our securre servers, The Homer Laughlin China Co. will reimburse you for up to $50 of any amounts you are required to pay by the card issuer.
Also, under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your credit card provider cannot hold you liable for more than $50 of unauthorized charges on a credit card. Your liability for unauthorized use of a debit card may be higher, but many debit card issuers voluntarily apply the $50 limit to their cards as well.
Remember: In the event of unauthorized use of your credit or debit card, you must promptly notify the card issuer pursuant to its reporting rules and procedures.
