OSI Privacy and Electronic Security Policy
The entirety of our OSI and Farpointastro websites (not just the checkout and payment pages) are protected by an Extended Validation UCC SSL Certificate with SHA 2 (Secure Hash Algorithm 2) and 256 bit encryption. A green padlock plus the name of the company or organization, also in green, means this website is using an Extended Validation (EV) certificate. An EV certificate is a special type of site certificate that requires a significantly more rigorous identity verification process than other types of certificates. You will always see a HTTPS green lock in the address bar on any OSI and/or Farpointastro webpage indicating that all traffic is secure.
OSI respects your right to privacy and shall not transmit in any form your email or physical address information to outside parties. As such, we will not sell or provide our customer list to other parties. Any direct customer credit card information will also not be saved or transmitted in any form to any outside party. OSI direct sales, including international sales will be directed through PayPal, where the customer can choose to use his or her PayPal account, or a credit card. We do not see credit card information. OSI relies upon the security provided by PayPal to ensure that your transaction is handled safely and securely. We are Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliant.
