Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Enabling Cookies (recommended)
EV SSL (Extended Validation SSL) Privacy

Secure Socket Layer (SSL)
SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology is a standard Internet method of encrypting information exchange between your browser and the website. All of our web pages are secure and begin with 'https', whereas sites beginning with 'http' are not secure. On fully secure pages you will see the padlock icon on your browser status. The padlock icon is in different locations in different browsers and versions - for example the padlock is at the top next to the URL entry field in Internet Explorer 7, whilst it is shown at the bottom in older versions of Internet Explorer. Our EV SSL certificate uses the latest 2048 bit RSA key size for stronger encryption.

EV SSL (Extended Validation SSL)
We've gone green! We have an Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate, which is the highest assurance certificate. The green address bar, exclusive to EV SSL, provides visual assurance to visitors that the site is verified and secured. An EV SSL certificate assures you that the most complete and thorough checks have been preformed on our company by the certificate issuer, Comodo, to validate our identity before issuing our EV SSL certificate.

On some browsers, URL bar turning green indicates Airbrushes.com now has Extended Validation SSL

The Extended Validation provides assurance of who you are dealing with. Even if your web browser does not support the new EV identifier, your web transactions are still encrypted over SSL.

These are the browsers as of December 2008 that support the EV identifier. If a site uses an EV Certificate and it is valid, it typically changes some part of the Address Bar to a shade of green.

  • Internet Explorer 7+
  • Firefox 3+
  • Safari 3.2+
  • Google Chrome 1.x+
  • Opera 9.5x+
  • Comodo Dragon 0.9x+

Some reasons why your URL bar does not turn green, even though we have EV SSL:

  • Your URL address bar has been hi-jacked by other providers of online security software. Look out for other icons on your URL address bar.
  • In IE 7, the Phishing filter is not enabled. IE 7 requires the Phishing filter (Tools Menu) to be on. On Windows XP it is off by default.
  • In Firefox 3, OCSP is off. Firefox 3 requires OCSP to be on, which is the default.
  • Your web browser does not support EV. Most modern browsers do support it. If yours doesn't support EV then you will still have protection of SSL encryption.
  • Your web browser DOES support EV, but does not change the URL address bar.
