Purchase transaction details
To complete purchase transactions History Today Ltd. will use credit or debit card details, and billing or delivery address information provided by you.
A security method called Secure Socket Layer (SSL), encrypts all ordering information so that no part of your order - including your name, address, and credit card number - can be read by a third party. Consequently, your credit card number is safer when you order online through SSL than when you make a credit card purchase in a restaurant or a store!
