The Viridian Gold Jewelry Store website is hosted by Yahoo! Stores and runs on Yahoo! Merchant Solutions software.  All credit card processing occurs through the secure system maintained by Yahoo, Incorporated, a publicly traded company (NasdaqNM:YHOO) with 2012 revenue of $5 billion.  The following is a description of steps Yahoo! and Viridian Gold take to protect your information from misuse:

  • Secure Socket Layer (SSL): Yahoo! Store software uses Advanced Encryption Standard 256-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption when transmitting certain kinds of information, such as financial services information or payment information. Yahoo has also been tested to confirm it's servers are not susceptible to the "Heartbleed" vulnerability which was so heaviy publicized in April 2014. An icon resembling a padlock is displayed in most browsers during SSL transactions that involve credit cards and other forms of payment. Any time Viridian Gold asks for a credit card number during checkout for payment, it will be SSL encrypted. The information you provide will be securely processed on Yahoo! servers.
